The next week, Jerry Jacobs of the Detroit Lions will be cleared for practise.

During Wednesday practise, Jerry Jacobs was running and cutting under the watchful eye of team trainer.

The Lions have taken a slow approach to returning injured players, and even Jacobs has not practised.

The Lions appear to be confident in their top two outside cornerbacks. Despite a difficult game against the Vikings, the team is still confident in Amani Oruwariye playing the other side, even though Jeff Okudah is now performing at a high level.

Jacobs might influence the team's nickel competition as Mike Hughes has had some early difficulties. Jacobs was able to play nickel corner last year, according to coach Dan Campbell.
