Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron could be pushing toward Lions return
Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron look like they could be back soon for the Detroit Lions.
Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron didn't play Sunday for the Detroit Lions, but their return could be on the horizon.
On Wednesday, both were spotted moving fairly well in and around the facilities for the Detroit Lions by Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
Random locker room observation: Eric Ebron seemed to be walking fine as he made his way through a side door today. Closing in on a return— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) October 19, 2016
One more observation: Theo Riddick danced his way into the lounge area (off limits to media). Ankle seems fine on him, too.— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) October 19, 2016

The fact that both of these players are moving around well on their injured ankles would seem to bode well for a speedy return to the Lions, perhaps even by this weekend. Ebron has missed the last two games and Riddick was held out on Sunday.
Naturally, Jim Caldwell quickly deferred media members to the injury report when asked, but casual observation seem to lend to the fact that both offensive contributors could be back soon.
