One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Returner Stefan Logan proves his worth

Perhaps lost in the Lions’ 2-9 record is the Herculean effort of return specialist Stefan Logan.

In Thursday’s loss to the Patriots, Logan averagd nearly 28 yards per kickoff return. Plus he notched a tackle on a Lions’ kickoff.

Returns were an issue all last season. The roster was so shaky that the Lions couldn’t afford to have a returner who was just a returner. That changed a bit this season so Logan was claimed off waivers on Sept. 6. And actually he is more than a returner. He plays on all special teams units and has lined up at wide receiver.

It was another good move by Mayhew.

When he returned a punt 71 yards against the Redskins a few weeks ago, he became the first Lion in franchise history to return a 100-yard kickoff and a punt return for at least 70 yards.

No wonder he’s can be a forgotten man. He’s only 5-foot-6 and 180 pounds.
