Detroit Lions star wide receiver Kenny Golladay hasn't played since suffering a hip injury in Week 8. He hasn't been able to practice since then, either. But that changed on Wednesday, as Golladay was deemed healthy enough to log a limited practice.

This development puts him on track to suit up in Week 11, which should give the Lions' offense a massive boost.

Though he's missed four games (leaving another early) already, Golladay has been incredible when he's been on the field. He's recorded either 100 receiving yards or a touchdown in each of his four healthy outings this season.

Having an elite receiver like Kenny G back should be music to Matthew Stafford's ears. Stafford is currently dealing with a thumb injury himself, so Golladay's return should help account for the fact that the Lions' gun slinger won't be at 100%.

Even with Golladay's return looking likely, FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 11 NFL odds have the Lions as 1.5-point underdogs against the Carolina Panthers.
