Sims out, Foote uncertain
ALLEN PARK Starting middle linebacker Ernie Sims said hes out for Sunday with a hamstring injury. Hes not sure how many games he might miss. Hell continue to get treatment and see how he progresses.
Along with Sims, linebacker Larry Foote (knee) did not practice today for the second straight day. Foote also avoided the media. And coach Jim Schwartz is mum, as usual, on injuries so its uncertain if Foote will play on Sunday at Minnesota.
Rookie DeAndre Levy will likely get the start for Sims in the middle. If Foote is also out, look for Jordon Dizon to step in on the outside.
I feel pretty comfortable, I feel I have the defense down. Actually getting game time has helped me a tremendous amount just to relax and play football, Levy said.
Levy has played in all eight games and started three of them while Dizon has been in all eight games also.
