Bigby on track to return to field on Sunday against Lions

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Safety Atari Bigby is ready to return to the Green Bay Packers, and the big hits can't be far behind.

Bigby doesn't think jaw-jarring tackles are the biggest contribution he can make in his return from a knee injury in the season-opener. Bigby says his biggest asset is confidence that rubs off on his teammates.

Bigby was back t practice for the Packers this week, and could be back on the field for Sunday's home game against Detroit. His injury caused the Packers to scramble for a reliable backup, leaving a significant hole in what suddenly became a vulnerable secondary.
