Defensive end Aidan Hutchinson is one of the Detroit Lions’ star players, so fans are at the edge of their seats, waiting to find out if he’ll play in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Hutchinson returned to the practice field for the Lions on Friday, which is good news. He missed the first two days of practice this week, but when asked on Friday (Sept. 23), said he is “feeling good” after Friday’s practice.

The latest on Hutchinson is that he’s listed as questionable to play in Minnesota. That said, he does expect to play. “I think come game time I don’t think we’ll be thinking about that,” Hutchinson said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Another issue for the Lions going into Sunday’s game is that star running back D’Andre Swift got in a second straight limited practice on Friday. He is also listed as questionable.
