Sims hurting

ALLEN PARK — Since linebacker Ernie Sims has never suffered a hamstring injury, he went to the internet to learn more about what ails him.

“They say it takes about a good two to three weeks, depending on how severe it is,’’ Sims said.

He  pulled the hamstring in Sunday’s loss at Seattle. He had a magnetic resonance imaging test on Tuesday and was to speak to a doctor and learn the results later Wednesday. He thinks it is a tear.

From his research Sims thinks it’s good news that there is no swelling or bruising. He said it’s just real tight.

“I’m taking it day to day now, I’m hoping God blessed me. I hate the feeling being away from football and not being on the field,’’ Sims said. He missed the win over Washington on Sept. 27 with a shoulder injury.

If he can’t go, it’s likely that rookie DeAndre Levy will get the start in his place. Levy has started two games this season.
