Lions Left Tackle Taylor Decker Designated to Return from IR

Lions offensive tackle Taylor Decker practiced Wednesday and could play Sunday.

Decker injured his left hand in a pass rushing drill Sept. 8 and has yet to take a snap this season. He practiced with a cast on his left hand.

Rookie Penei Sewell has played left tackle, with Matt Nelson at right tackle, in Decker’s absence. But Sewell will move back to the right side when Decker returns to action.

“We’ll just see where Decker goes and how he feels and just take it from there,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “But at least we can start working with him, on the field, true football.”
