Dahl (undisclosed) is participating in team drills during training camp, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Dahl was limited in spring workouts, but the offensive lineman seems to be healthy again. Dahl is competing for a depth role along the offensive line.
Dahl reportedly wore a red no-contact jersey throughout OTAs and minicamp. It isn't clear what the offensive lineman is dealing with, but it might be related to the lower leg injury that planted him on injured reserve for over half of the 2017 season. When healthy, Dahl will compete for a depth role along the Detroit offensive line.
Dahl was placed on injured reserve in September and was designated to return in late November. It's unclear the role the Lions have in mind, but he was serving in a reserve role when the injury was sustained.
Dahl will resume practicing Monday, initiating a 21-day window in which the Lions can evaluate the offensive lineman before deciding to add him to the 53-man roster or keep him on injured reserve the rest of the season. The 24-year-old has been sidelined since Week 2 with an injury to his lower leg.
Dahl had been in contention for the starting gig at left tackle entering the spring when Taylor Decker suffered a torn labrum, but he was ultimately relegated to a reserve role to open the season after the Lions acquired 2014 first-round pick Greg Robinson to fill the void. The Lions had used Dahl on special teams in their Week 2 win over the Giants, but suffered a lower-leg injury that kept him inactive for the team's loss to the Falcons on Sunday. It appears that Dahl wasn't on track to return from the injury anytime soon, so the Lions elected to move him to IR and open up a roster spot for fellow lineman Tim Lelito.
