Jahvid Best said on Thursday that he hoped to play this week against the Packers. On Friday, he made his case for being active by practicing.
Best had missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday because of his turf toe injury, putting his status for Sunday in doubt. By getting on the practice field today, however, Best greatly improved his chances of getting to play. Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said this on Twitter about whether or not Best will play.
I think Jahvid's on the right track. It may be a game-time decision - it may not - but rest definitely helped him the first days of the week
The Lions will need all the help they can get on offense with Matthew Stafford out again, so to even have a chance of beating Green Bay, Best is probably going to have to play.
