Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy was back on the practice field Thursday for the first time in five weeks.

Levy has been battling a hip injury and has yet to play during the regular season. It’s unclear whether he’ll be ready for Monday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, but his return is a positive sign regardless.

The 28-year-old had 151 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and an interception last season.
