Lions' Avril, Hanson expect to sit out at Dallas
ALLEN PARK -- Kicker Jason Hanson, who is rehabbing an injured right knee, hopes to return to action for the sold-out Thanksgiving Day game against the Patriots.
Same for defensive end Cliff Avril who hasn’t been able to practice because of a quadriceps bruise.
Neither is sure that they will be ready, but it’s the goal for both.
Both said today (Thursday) they do not expect to be ready to play on Sunday at Dallas.
Neither played in the loss at Buffalo on Sunday.
