5 starters sit out practice; Best gives it a go

ALLEN PARK -- It’s difficult to judge the important absences at Lions practice today (Tuesday) because it’s a different week with the quick turn-around from Sunday to Thanksgiving.

Running back Jahvid Best, who usually doesn’t practice until Friday during a normal week, was on the field.

Defensive ends Kyle Vanden Bosch and Corey Williams (shoulder) did not participate in practice. While it appeared Cliff Avril was on the field in a limited basis. Avril has missed the last two games due to his quadriceps injury. Linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba, who has missed the last three games with a knee injury, practiced.

Tight end Tony Scheffler, who injured his ribs on Sunday, sat out. As did quarterback Matthew Stafford who has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury.

Also, kicker Jason Hanson did not kick.

The Lions play the Patriots at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday at Ford Field.
