Hanson doesn't kick at practice; Best, HIll still out
ALLEN PARK — Jason Hanson was at Lions’ practice today and went through the motions, but did not kick the ball. An unsubstantiated report is that he has stitches in one of his knees from a bye weekend incident.
If it was serious, the Lions would have likely signed a kicker by now. Dave Rayner, the backup last season, just signed with the Buffalo Bills.
Also Jahvid Best (concussion) did not practice again. He’s missed two games and it seems unlikely he’ll be ready to go on Sunday at Chicago.
Also out for the second day was defensive tackle Sammie Hill, who did have an ankle injury but played in the last game at Denver.
Kyle Vanden Bosch sat out, but that’s not unusual for a Wednesday. It’s a rest day for the veteran defensive end.
