Peterman could be done
ALLEN PARK It appears starting right guard Stephen Peterman is out for the season after he injured his right ankle in the loss at Minneapolis.
It looks like hes going to have surgery, well probably know more at the end of the day. Hes seeing a specialist, coach Jim Schwartz said early Friday afternoon. It doesnt look good as far as him continuing. Well know more later today.
Losing Peterman for the final seven games is a blow for the Lions.
Other than Chicago Stephen himself will tell you he didnt play very well against Chicago but Stephen was very, very consistent. He played with great effort and you could rely on him every single week. Every week hed look exactly the same, he wasnt an up-and-down player, he didnt bring that. He brought a steady, veteran player and thats why we re-signed him last year. Thats going to be something well have to overcome. Were going to need these other guys to step up and to be more consistent because thats what Stephen gave us, he gave us a rock over there at right guard.
Expect Daniel Loper, who has started two games at left guard this season, to step in for Peterman.
