Detroit Lions Darius Slay, Golden Tate collide

ALLEN PARK >> Cornerback Darius Slay had a scare when Golden Tate fell on him during a drill at Monday morning’s training camp practice.

“What actually happened is he had a little problem with a one-on-one situation, Golden Tate went up for a ball, came down kind of on his neck. I told him Golden has a way of being a pain in the neck once in a while,’’ coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’ll be fine, he’ll be back in practice (Tuesday).’’

Slay was back on the field for the end of practice, but just watching.

All he would say afterward is, “I’m good.’’

Bill Bentley took his place in the rotation.

“Its football, those things are going to happen, it’s nothing major,’’ cornerback Rashean Mathis said. “We never play 100 percent, coach told us that a couple days ago in a meeting except for the start of camp, that’s the only time you’re 100 percent after that we’re always dealing with something. That’s why we’re the best athletes in the world, you just have to push through it.’’
