Who Powered Through: Jahvid Best Practices For Lions

Despite having turf toe injuries on both feet, Lions running back Jahvid Best was at practice on Tuesday, indicating that he will play on Thanksgiving against the Patriots. Best's problem with turf toes has hampered him throughout the season, especially this past Sunday against Dallas. Because the injuries limited him so much, the thinking was that he may just sit the Patriots game out to heal, but that doesn't appear to be the case considering he participated in Tuesday's practice.

Cliff Avril and Isaiah Ekejiuba also practiced on Tuesday. The two had been out recently, but it looks like they will play against New England. According to Tom Kowalski, it also appears that Kyle Vanden Bosch and Corey Williams will play against the Patriots despite not practicing on Tuesday. It would be great if they all were able to go, because the Lions will need to be close to full strength health-wise to have a shot at winning.

Tony Scheffler and Jason Hanson did not practice on Tuesday and are currently doubtful for Thursday's game.
