The good news out of Lions practice today is that Jahvid Best was there. The bad news is that he wasn’t there to actually practice. Still, beginning to be around team activities has to be regarded as a step in the right direction.
Ryan Donahue (quad), Lawrence Jackson (thigh), Amari Spievey (toe), Kyle Vanden Bosch (non-injury related) and Willie Young (ankle) also missed practice today.
Matthew Stafford (finger) is the only other Lions player to appear on the injury report but he took all his normal reps. Stafford will wear a glove on his throwing hand again this week but his finger is healing and no setback occurred in the Bears game.
