Bawden logged snaps on special teams during Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, Chris Burke of the Athletic reports.
Analysis: Bawden missed the entire 2018 season due to a torn ACL and was thought to be a candidate for the regular-season PUP list. However, he's seemingly progressed faster than originally thought, and his availability for Thursday's exhibition game all but confirms that he's good to go moving forward.
Bawden (knee) is a candidate to open the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Bawden has yet to practice in full since tearing an ACL last July. Detroit is going to have some tough choices to make in the backfield when it comes time to make roster cuts in early September. If Vitale isn't fully ready to go by that time, stashing him on the PUP list is one way the Lions could buy time to make a decision. Behind starter Kerryon Johnson and backup C.J. Anderson, there seem to be three other options (Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner, Ty Johnson) competing with Bawden for what will likely amount to two roster spots.
Bawden (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Bawden is still recovering from a torn ACL that kept him on injured reserve for the entire 2018 season. The San Diego State product missed OTAs as well as the team's minicamp. It's unclear if Bawden will be good to go come training camp in late July, but more information should surface closer to that time.

Analysis: Bawden is recovering from a torn ACL that planted him on injured reserve for the entirety of the 2018 season. Running back Mark Thompson and tight end Jerome Cunningham have stepped in at fullback in his absence Wednesday.
