Dennis Northcutt (thumb), expected to be the Lions' slot receiver, caught some balls in a limited practice.
"The good news is he was able to get out, he's been able to catch the ball with the quarterbacks," coach Jim Schwartz said. "But also he's been able to get back to catch punts. The punts are typically (when) the ball's coming in harder. So when you reach that point, it's looking good for him. So I'm hoping to see him get some reps."
