Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy practiced Wednesday for the first time since early September.

Levy played in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts, but has been out with hamstring and knee injuries ever since. The team did not place him on Injured Reserve, and  -- while Jim Caldwell has been tight-lipped on the timeline for Levy's recovery -- there have been hints that they hoped to see him back this season.

Wednesday's practice certainly looks like a step in that direction.
