The Detroit Lions are preparing for their annual Thanksgiving Day game, this season against the Buffalo Bills. While they have been eagerly awaiting rookie wideout Jameson Williams' NFL debut to happen, that will come after Thanksgiving.

Josh Reynolds Injury Update

Today, though, Detroit got some great news regarding the health of another wide receiver. Josh Reynolds will be on the field against Buffalo after being out since Week 8 with a back injury.

Reynolds had a really string stretch this season from Weeks 3 through 5, hauling in at least 6 catches and 80 yards in each of those contests. The big-bodied Reynolds provides another element to the Lions' passing attack when he's on the field, and they are going to need it on Thanksgiving, going up against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills' defense is the No. 5 scoring defense in the NFL.

The Lions are currently 9.5-point home underdogs in Week 12 against the Bills, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
