Lions offensive lineman Joe Dahl has been designated to return from injured reserve and has resumed practicing, Detroit announced today.

Dahl, 24, appeared in six games for the Lions in 2016 after the club selected him out of Washington State in the fifth round. He’d been expected to be in the mix for a starting role this season, but those hopes were dashed when Detroit inked free agent guard T.J. Lang to a three-year deal. Dahl was placed on injured reserve with a leg injury following Week 3.
