T.J. Hockenson, TE (DET)

Back at practice

Hockenson (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Hockenson didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, but the tight end's return for Thursday's session bodes well for his chances of suiting up for Sunday's contest against the Rams. That said, it wouldn't surprise us to see Hockenson listed as questionable come Friday, as he was in advance of Week 6 action before suiting up this past Sunday against the Bengals en route to catching eight of his 11 targets for 74 yards.
