Hanson kicks at practice; Best, Hill still out
ALLEN PARK — Unlike Wednesday, Jason Hanson was kicking field goals at practice today (Thursday). It was cold and windy on the outdoor practice field, but still no simulation of what it could be like on Sunday at Chicago’s Soldier Field.
On Wednesday’s injury report Hanson was listed with a left knee injury. That’s his plant leg.
So while it’s a good sign, Hanson was kicking it’s still not a sure thing he will be kicking on Sunday. The Lions tried out a pair of kickers — Rhys Lloyd and Shayne Graham on Wednesday.
Still missing from practice were Jahvid Best (concussion) and Sammie Hill (ankle). While neither has been officially ruled out for Sunday, it seems unlikely either will be active.
