Joique Bell practices fully for Detroit Lions

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- While Reggie Bush's status for Sunday is in question right now after he missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury, it appears the Detroit Lions will have their other top running backs against Minnesota.

Joique Bell returned to practice Wednesday and practiced fully, a sign he has been fully cleared from his concussion suffered against the Jets last month. It was Bell's first concussion. Theo Riddick also returned fully after missing every practice last week with a hamstring injury.

If both of them are healthy and ready to go, it could make the decision to sit either or both Calvin Johnson and Bush a bit easier.

Bell, Riddick and Cassius Vaughn (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday. Safety Jerome Couplin (ribs) was limited. The aforementioned Bush and Johnson along with tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle) and linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) all missed practice.
