Mohamed Ibrahim is back in Detroit and walking again after spending the night in a Baltimore-area hospital after he dislocated his hip in Sunday`s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell said Monday.
“They just needed to put him under to get the hip back in, which it did. It’s good,” Campbell said. “And so he’s obviously, he`s walking around. So that’s good news. That’s good news.”

Ibrahim was injured when he was tackled after a 22-yard kick return in Sunday’s third quarter.
Lions players immediately began waving to the sideline for medical help, and Ibrahim was loaded onto a stretcher and taken off the field by cart.
Promoted to Sunday’s game-day roster from the Lions practice squad, Ibrahim played six special teams snaps in his NFL debut.
Campbell said “it’ll be a while” before he’s able to return to the field.
“Still a lot of pain, but at least he can move that hip,” Campbell said. “But that’s what it was, just needed to get it back in.”
Campbell said safety Kerby Joseph, who was removed from Sunday’s game and evaluated for a brain injury, is no longer in concussion protocol. Joseph should play next Monday night against the Las Vegas Raiders.
