Lions Hold Practice Before Heading Out For Bye Week

Although the Detroit Lions don't have a game this week, they aren't taking every day off. Before breaking for the bye week, the Lions held a practice on Wednesday. The purpose of the practice was to get a little bit of work in before the players get to relax for the remainder of the week.

Because there is no game, no injury report was posted for the practice, but Dave Birkett did provide a rundown of who sat out the session.

Right tackle Gosder Cherilus (knee), receiver Rashied Davis (foot) and defensive backs Amari Spievey, John Wendling (knee) and Eric Wright also did not practice.

That list is in addition to quarterback Matthew Stafford and running back Jahvid Best. There was no real reason for Stafford to practice considering his ankle probably isn't 100 percent, and Best is still recovering from his latest concussion.

One player who was out last week but did practice on Wednesday is defensive tackle Nick Fairley. He was on the field for the practice, indicating he should be ready to go after the bye week.
