Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said Thursday that he expected Suh (illness) to return to practice Friday, but Suh was not present at the portion of Friday's practice open to the media.

You know the bug that is making its way around the Lions' facility is nasty if it's strong enough to keep Suh out of practice for two days in a row. On Thursday, Caldwell would not rule out the possibility of Suh missing Sunday's game against Minnesota. "It's not out of the question," Caldwell said. We should know more after the Lions release their official injury designations.

Suh didn't practice Thursday due to an illness, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Suh's absence from practice marks the first of his five-year career due to a health concern, which should spur IDP owners to watch his status in advance of Sunday's game versus the Vikings. His disruptive style has so far translated to 38 tackles (32 solo), 5.5 sacks, and one fumble recovery in 13 contests this season.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Lions are willing to let walk-year DT Ndamukong Suh reach the open market next offseason.

Per Rapoport, the Lions want an "informed" Suh to "sign a deal he's happy with." It's a bizarre tact, one that would all but assure Suh leaves as a free agent. Players of his caliber almost never reach the open market. It's possible the Lions are simply tired of the Suh experience, but he's an irreplaceable presence up front.

The Lions are tabling extension talks with walk-year DT Ndamukong Suh until after the season.

The word comes from team president Tom Lewand, who remains "optimistic" a deal will get done. It's quite a gamble from the Lions, who boast precious little leverage in talks with one of the league's very best players. Thanks to his insane salary-cap number this season, Suh would cost $26.7 million to franchise tag in 2015. That means it's not going to happen, and that Suh will reach the open market if the sides can't hammer out an extension before free agency.

Ndamukong Suh's personal trainer says he'll report to camp as a "physical specimen."

Suh's absence from voluntary workouts led to lots of pointless sound and fury, but was never a concern. "Ndamukong is a stud," Suh's trainer said. "A guy like that is a pretty unique guy. ... He knows what he has to do to be ready, and I think he's proven that every year he's been ready." Already one of the league's most-imposing physical presences, Suh is firmly in his prime heading into his age-27 campaign.

Citing a source with knowledge of the situation, Profootballtalk.com reports a Ndamukong Suh trade "remains highly unlikely."

PFT's Mike Florio reports "no discussions or negotiations aimed at a possible trade have occurred." A new contract would be a requirement in any theoretical trade negotiations, meaning Suh would have to be involved. That hasn't happened, and isn't expected to. The Lions hinted at their long-term plans for Suh by declining fellow DT Nick Fairley's club option for the 2015 season.
