Six Lions out against Browns
DETROIT -- CB Jonathan Wade is the only surprise among those who will sit out today’s preseason game against the Browns. Eric King will start in his place.
Others who are out are: S C.C. Brown, CB Aaron Berry, DE Lawrence Jackson, CB Jack Williams and K Jason Hanson
Rookie Randy Phillips will get the start for the injured Brown while Eric King will start in place of Wade.
As planned Hanson kicked in the pre pre-game warmups. He kicked several field goals, was mostly accurate and distance was not an issue. After the field goals he kicked off. His kicks sailed clearly into the end zone from midfield and five yards back.
Hanson, who is coming off minor knee surgery, is expected to play in the final preseason game on Thursday at Ford Field against the Bills. After the successful warmups, it appears he is right on track.
