DeVries out for season
Defensive end Jared DeVries is out for the season after he ruptured an Achilles tendon in this mornings practice. It will require season-ending surgery.
DeVries went down late in this mornings practice during a goal-line drill. He was carted off the field. After practice coach Jim Schwartz said it didnt 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.
