Lions RB Ameer Abdullah ditches red jersey - [Full Article]

Lions RB Ameer Abdullah has ditched the red jersey.

For the first time since training camp started back in late July, Abdullah was out at practice without his “no contact” red jersey on.

“It feels right,” he said afterward. “It feels natural.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The story went on to say Saturday’s practice was a walkthrough in shorts and no helmets, and head coach Jim Caldwell wouldn’t confirm that Abdullah’s contact restrictions would be lifted this week, but the second-year running does appear to be trending in the right direction after joining his offensive teammates in their blue jerseys for the first time since training camp began. Abdullah said he’d even like to play in Saturday’s third preseason game in Baltimore, if allowed.
