Lions injury update: Decker and Board return, 6 players still sidelined

Left tackle Taylor Decker and linebacker Chris Board were back on the field in Allen Park

. Decker missed Wednesday with a personal issue, while Board sat with a knee injury.

Board remained on limited status, but that’s progress for the speedy LB.

WR DJ Chark (ankle) DE Charles Harris (groin) S Ifeatu Melifonwu (ankle)

OT Matt Nelson (calf) CB Bobby Price (knee) WR Josh Reynolds (knee)

 C Frank Ragnow (foot), Will Harris (hip) and John Cominsky (wrist) were not full participants in Thursday’s practice.
