Fantasy Football Injury Updates for Thanksgiving Day Games

Normally I do the Friday Injury Update to get you up to speed on the latest fantasy-relevant injury information from around the league. With three games coming on Thursday this week, Thanksgiving Day, I feel the need to push the normal post date up for this article.

So this morning – before or after you’ve perused the Week 12 start/sit picks, the Week 12 player rankings, the waiver wire sleeper picks, and helped me set my Week 12 roster in the P&G-sponsored Blogger Fantasy Football League* – let’s run down all of the injury news for the six teams playing on Thanksgiving Day.

I’ll also point out some other notable injuries for Sunday and Monday that you’ll need to know as you make your lineup decisions before eating yourself into a food coma tomorrow.

New England-Detroit Injury Updates for Thanksgiving Day

Tom Brady didn’t practice on Tuesday, with reports indicating that he’s still dealing with a foot issue. This is nothing to worry about. He’s taken a day off from practice for three straight weeks and will be ready to light up Detroit’s secondary on Turkey Day.

Matthew Stafford is still out so Shaun Hill gets the not again. But you probably knew that.

Jahvid Best is back practicing, which is good news. However, reports are indicating that Maurice Morris (no relation to me, in case you were wondering…my athletic prowess confuses some) will probably get the start. I’m not really excited about either.
