Another DB on IR
As expected the Lions have placed starting safety Ko Simpson on Injured Reserve which means his season is over. Simpson injured his knee in the 38-37 win over Cleveland on Sunday. On Tuesday coach Jim Schwartz indicated that Simpsons injury was significant. Simpson is the sixth defensive back to be placed on Injured Reserve.
Marvin White is likely to get the start. Another safety, Kalvin Pearson (hamstring), is listed as out on the injury report for Thursdays game.
