Detroit Lions — Riley Reiff doesn't practice; Reggie Bush, Calvin Johnson do

ALLEN PARK — Lions left tackle Riley Reiff did not practice today (Tuesday) after suffering a knee injury on Sunday.

Coach Jim Caldwell would only say “we’ll see” when asked whether Reiff would play on Thanksgiving against the Chicago Bears.

Reggie Bush, who has missed two straight games and four of the last six, practiced in the portion open to the media.

Calvin Johnson, who usually gets a practice day as a rest day, was working too. 

Ashlee Palmer, who sustained a concussion on Sunday, also practiced.

As expected, Nick Fairley (knee) and Larry Warford (knee) did not practice.

Rookie Travis Swanson could get his third straight start in place of Warford.

 Expect Cornelius Lucas to start at either right or left tackle. It's possible LaAdrian Waddle could shift from right to left tackle.

Also the Lions promoted guard Rodney Austin from the practice squad and released tight end Kellen Davis.

Austin will likely be active on Sunday as the backup guard/center. 

 Davis was signed a month ago when all three tight ends were injured. He was inactive in Sunday’s game.
