Ihedigbo (quadriceps) is listed as active Sunday versus the Vikings, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Ihedigbo (quadriceps) was listed as a limited participant at practice Thursday. Ihedigbo, who missed last Sunday's game against the Bears, wasn't able to practice Wednesday as he continues to deal with a quad injury which he suffered during Week 5. While his practice status Thursday seems to indicate the 31-year-old's health is improving, head coach Jim Caldwell was cautious when discussing his safety's status saying, "He got a little bit better, but not quite where we'd like to see him. Hopefully this week he'll be all right." We'll know more about Ihedigbo's game-time designation after Friday's practice.
Ihedigbo (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears. The fact that Ihedigbo won't dress comes as something of a surprise after he was able to return to Friday's practice in limited fashion. He's been a key player in the Lions' secondary this season, generating 36 tackles, three forced fumbles, and an interception over five games.

Lions strong safety James Ihedigbo has reported to OTAs and will likely attend minicamp despite his stated desire for a new contract, the Detroit News is reporting. Ihedigbo was the lone Lion to skip voluntary workouts last month. But general manager Martin Mayhew expressed understanding about his absence given the contract situation. The 31-year-old Ihedigbo has been a starter in the NFL since 2009. He racked up 59 tackles and a career-high four interceptions in his first season with Detroit in 2014.
