Detroit Lions Injury Report, Week 12: Jahvid Best Ruled Out For Packers Game

The Detroit Lions have a pretty important divisional game on Thursday when they play the Green Bay Packers. The NFC North rivalry game will take place on Thanksgiving Day, but the Lions won't be thankful for missing running back Jahvid Best for at least one more week.

Best is said to be recovering from the concussion symptoms that have kept him out for the past month, but the running back was still deemed unable to play in the Thanksgiving game. Kevin Smith, the NFC's Offensive Player of the Week, will step in once again as Detroit tries to upset the Packers.

The only other player that definitely won't play for the Lions is punter Ryan Donahue, who also missed last week's game due to a quad injury. In addition to Donahue, defensive end Lawrence Jackson is doubtful with a thigh injury after not practicing all week.

The Lions listed defensive lineman Corey Williams and Willie Young as questionable against Green Bay, though both were able to be partial participants in Wednesday's practice. The remainder of the injury report, posted here, was filled with players listed as probable.
