Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (groin) is listed as active Monday at Seattle, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Ansah missed practice Thursday but turned in limited showings both Friday and Saturday, forecasting an appearance in Week 4. Through three games, he's supplemented a team-best two sacks with 12 tackles (10 solo).
Lions running back Joique Bell (ankle) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, according to MLive.com.
Bell's absence on Monday night gave Ameer Abdullah unfettered access to touches out of the Lions' backfield, but the rookie could only muster 33 yards on the ground and two catches for 11 yards against the Seahawks' typically stout defense.
Meanwhile, Theo Riddick took on a pass-catching role, turning five receptions into 31 yards. If Bell remains out of commission, the preceding breakdown of reps between Abdullah and Riddick will likely be replicated.
Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip) returned to practice Wednesday, The Detroit News reports.
Levy was forced to sit out of the Lions' Week 4 Monday night contest against the Seahawks with the hip injury, but he returned to practice Wednesday. There is a chance he takes the field Week 5, as the winless Lions play the Cardinals at home.
Wednesday marks Pettigrew's first practice since sustaining the hamstring injury Sept. 13, and he could be ready for the Lions' Week 5 matchup against the Cardinals.
Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (knee) is also banged up and expected to sit out a couple weeks, which would likely promote Pettigrew to the starting spot for the time being. Tim Wright would also likely see more snaps in Ebron's absence.
Bowman has been fairly vanilla in 2015, failing to reach double-digit tackles in a single game this season. On a positive note, he didn't appear to be limited by the minor knee injury suffered last week.
Bowman isn't playing at the level we were used to prior to his gruesome knee injury in the 2013 NFC Championship, but owners have to give him a bit more leash in case he is simply shaking off the rust.
49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks will not be placed on the commissioner's exempt list and will open the season on the active roster, the team announced. Brooks was recently indicted on one count of sexual battery.
49ers tight end Vernon Davis (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
After straining his knee in Week 3, Davis didn't practice once last week and was eventually deemed inactive Sunday versus the Packers. His return to practice is certainly a good sign, but two days remain to show that he's ready to return for Sunday Night Football against the Giants in New York. Because Vance McDonald also fit in a limited showing Wednesday, the 49ers could soon have its tight-end corps intact.
49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Packers, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.
Patton was one of the few bright spots for the 49ers, catching both of his targets for 53 yards. If he misses any time, Bruce Ellington will likely take over as the No. 3 wide receiver in a poor offense.
