Lions Notes: Jahvid Best Likely Out Again This Week

  • Dave Birkett reports that although Jahvid Best is feeling relatively normal despite suffering another concussion just a couple weeks ago, it's unlikely that he will play on Sunday against the Broncos.
  • Luckily there hasn't been any snow in Michigan yet (knock on wood), but the same can't be said for Colorado. On Wednesday, the Broncos practice fields were completely covered in snow. The Lions are practicing outside this week to get ready for the game in Denver, and luckily the snow is expected to be gone by Sunday.
  • Expect to see a lot of orange at Sunday's Lions-Broncos game.
  • Drew Stanton is acting as Tim Tebow on the scout team.
  • Voting is now open for the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl.
  • Ndamukong Suh was quite upset with the accusations about him taunting an injured Matt Ryan, and he fired back at the Falcons earlier this week.
  • In addition to denying the taunting accusations, Suh made an accusation of his own by saying that the Falcons offensive line is dirty. Interestingly enough, Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji had similarly negative things to say about the Falcons O-line earlier this month.
  • To his credit, Matt Ryan has said he didn't hear any taunting, and when he was asked about if Suh is a dirty player, his response was that Suh is a "good player."
  • Falcons fullback Ovie Mughelli is out for the season after hurting his knee on a hit by Louis Delmas during last Sunday's game. Delmas was noticeably upset that Mughelli was hurt on the play.
  • The Lions-Falcons game will be featured on Versus' NFL Turning Point, which will air at 11:30 p.m. (ET) on Thursday.
  • MLive's new Lions beat writer is Anwar Richardson.
  • Jim Schwartz understandably wouldn't want the Lions to give up a home game to play in London.
  • Eric Wright said yesterday on Twitter that his fine for not wearing white socks was rescinded.
  • Dave Rayner was signed by the Raiders last Saturday and was released on Tuesday. He was in Oakland to fill in for the injured Sebastian Janikowski, and it turns out he will make around $40,000 for -- get this -- one kickoff. Since the Raiders were shut out, he only kicked off once, and he didn't attempt any field goals or extra points.
