Six Detroit Lions Ruled Out for Game Against New England Patriots


None of the names are surprising but the Detroit Lions have officially ruled six players out of Saturday night’s preseason game against the New England Patriots.

Jahvid Best returned to practice from his concussion but will not be risked in a game just yet.

Jason Fox, Nick Fairley and Alphonso Smith will not play due to foot injuries.

Kyle Vanden Bosch‘s shoulder has caused him to miss practice this week and will hold him out after playing in the first two preseason games.

Maurice Morris is close to returning from his broken hand but still isn’t ready to play.

    Won’t be expecting a lot of production running the ball with Morris and Best out.
