Lions' roster cuts will be more difficult this year

ALLEN PARK -- Here’s the news from the press conference of Jim Schwartz at lunchtime on Friday: Defensive end Korey Bosworth broke his leg in Thursday night’s win over the Bills. Bosworth, the nephew of Brian Bosworth, had to be carted off the field. He was a long shot to make the 53-man roster anyway.

That was it.

Schwartz did not want to tip his hat on any specific players or even position groups with the roster cut to 53 due at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

”We have certain agendas with players, some of which we’re very optimistic about, we’d like to find a way for them on the football team. Others maybe we’re trying to find a spot for, whether it’s trading or something else,’’ Schwartz said.

Schwartz did admit that the cut to 53 will be tougher than it was a year ago. That’s a good sign that this team has a more talented roster.
