    Lions' James Ihedigbo: Limited participant at practice Thursday

    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.

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 GM Mayhew OK with James Ihedigbo skipping workouts

    Safety James Ihedigbo was the lone absence from voluntary workouts this week for the Lions. But general manager Martin Mayhew understands. After all, Ihedigbo's agent has stated that he would not work without a new contract. "I look forward to talking with James," Mayhew told ESPN. "I understand what he's going through. I've been through that myself as a player, when I felt that a time in my career that I was underpaid and I had to deal with that. "So I have empathy for him. I understand what he's going through and I look forward to sitting down and talking with him. I have great respect for him as a player, as a man. I've gotten to know him a little bit away from football and I understand how he feels." Mayhew declined to discuss whether the Liins will rework Ihedigbo's contract. The 31-year-old Ihedigbo contributed 71 tackles and two sacks with a career-high four interceptions in 2014 despite missing three games at the start of the year with a nerve injury.
