The Lions are getting healthier as the regular season nears, activating Joique Bell and Haloti Ngata from the PUP list.

Bell will resume his role as RB1-A, being used in tandem with both Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. How the playing time will be spread out is something to watch for in week one.

Ngata’s arrival has been eagerly awaited by the Lions faithful. He was traded for in the off-season from the Baltimore Ravens following Ndamukong Suh‘s free agent departure. It’ll be interesting to see how Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin uses the former top 10 pick out of Oregon, already having familiarity with Ngata from his days as a Baltimore assistant coach.
