DeVries out for season

  Defensive end Jared DeVries is out for the season after he ruptured an Achilles tendon in this morning’s practice.  It will require season-ending surgery.
 DeVries went down late in this morning’s practice during a goal-line drill. He was carted off the field. After practice coach Jim Schwartz said it didn’t look good, but he had no medical prognosis.
  This is not good news for the Lions. The defensive line is a weak spot and without DeVries the situation is magnified.
  During practice the Lions had DT Shaun Smith, who was released from the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, in for testing.
