The Detroit Lions are already dealing with the possibility of running back Jahvid Best being out for their Thanksgiving game against the Green Bay Packers, but the team got even worse news during Tuesday's practice. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson didn't practice at all on Tuesday due to an injured ankle according to Tuesday's injury report.
Johnson was projected to be a full participant on Monday's injury report -- projected being the key word as the Lions only held a walkthrough -- but sat out all of Tuesday's practice with the bum ankle. Defensive tackle Corey Williams was also downgraded from limited to out on Tuesday due to a calf injury.
Along with Johnson and Williams, Best, punter Ryan Donahue and defensive tackle Lawrence Jackson all sat out on Tuesday. Best and Donahue are expected to miss this week's game while Jackson's status hasn't been determined quite yet.
Safeties Amari Spievey and Chris Harris were among those listed as limited on Tuesday while Matthew Stafford and Maurice Morris appeared on the injury report, but were able to both go through a full practice. The entire injury report is available on the Lions' website.
