Report: Detroit Lions' CB Darius Slay undergoes knee surgery

Cornerback Darius Slay, the second-round pick of the Detroit Lions, underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He is expected to be ready for training camp in July.

Prior to the draft reports surfaced that Slay had a torn meniscus. This was not a secret to the Lions.

On draft night Slay said he was told he wouldn’t knee surgery. He tried to just shrug it off as no big deal.

Also at the draft the Lions said they expected Slay to participate in rookie minicamp which starts on Friday.

Slay, who played at Mississippi State, is expected to compete for the starting position opposite Chris Houston.
