With a short week ahead to prepare for Thursday's Thanksgiving game with the Houston Texans, the Detroit Lions were back on the practice field in full pads on Tuesday following a walkthrough the previous day.

In addition to not having the services of recently suspended wide receiver Titus Young, the Lions were forced to put a limited distinction on 10 players at Tuesday's practice according to the team's initial injury report for Week 12. Among the names to take part in a limited capacity were star wide receiver Calvin Johnson and offensive guard Rob Sims, along with a group of eight defensive players that includes defensive backs Jacob Lacey, Erik Coleman, Chris Houston and Louis Delmas. Key defensive linemen Sammie Hill and Corey Williams were each also limited by knee injuries, while tackle Ndamukong Suh practiced in full despite entering the week with a knee injury of his own.

Along with Young, both Jeff Backus and Drayton Florence were held off the field on Tuesday. Backus is currently listed as doubtful to play in Week 12 after injuring his hamstring on Sunday, while Florence is also unlikely to suit up after being diagnosed with a concussion on Monday.
