Yesterday saw the return of Torey Krug and Noel Acciari to full practice, marking the first time this training camp that each of the two injured players were back without non-contact jerseys. Joe Sacco told the press that the first part of practice was mostly skating drills to get players back into the flow of skating and that Krug and Acciari looked good. Anders Bjork was also on the ice to skate but hasn’t been cleared for contact yet.

While Krug and Acciari have been cleared for contact, it’s uncertain whether either will see game play on Saturday.
Noel Acciari went into more detail about his recovery from the sports hernia he attained during the early part of last season. As one could imagine, it wasn’t a walk in the park.
Acciari played injured for parts of six months, and he fought through pain every step of the way.
“I think my biggest issue last year was trying to get my legs going,” said Acciari. “Every stride was painful last year, and the fact that I don’t have that right now is great, and I feel awesome. I just can’t wait for the season to start.”
Hopefully he and Krug will be able to go on Saturday night in Detroit.
