Lions TE T.J. Hockenson saw his rookie season end in November because of a nasty-looking right-ankle injury. Although he's practicing, it doesn't sound like the issue is totally behind him. According to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com: "Hockenson says the ankle has been an issue for him this offseason. He notices it's still not quite 100%, but he's out there running around and trying to push forward." If Hockenson's ankle hasn't rebounded all the way by the start of training camp, it's hard to imagine it getting better as he plays on it from here through the end of the season. That doesn't mean we're betting on Detroit deactivating the 2nd-year TE. It does, however, mean a potential limitation for the young player. At the least, it's a situation worth watching.
