The Detroit Lions are playing their annual Thanksgiving game against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, just a few days removed from Sunday's victory over the Carolina Panthers. This has made a bit of a mess with regards to the weekly injury report because the Lions didn't practice on Monday -- if they had practiced, however, Jahvid Best would not have taken the field.
Best, still nursing a concussion, was one of four players that were listed as DNPs on Monday's injury report. It wasn't an official injury report, though, as a note was included that said "the Lions held a walkthrough on Monday; practice designations are estimations."
The other players that wouldn't have practiced were punter Ryan Donahue and defensive ends Lawrence Jackson and Willie Young. Not surprisingly, those were the four players that were inactive due to injury during Sunday's victory over the Panthers.
Safeties Chris Harris and Amari Spievey, linebacker DeAndre Levy, wide receiver Maurice Stovall and defensive tackle Corey Williams also would have missed practice on Monday. Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and Maurice Morris were all listed on Monday's report as well, but they would have been full participants (at least according to the estimations).
It's a bit wonky, as mentioned earlier, but at least it's something.
