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.


Detroit Lions CB Nevin Lawson dislocates foot, undergoes surgery

The Lions are down another cornerback.

Detroit Lions rookie Nevin Lawson dislocated his foot in the 24-7 loss to the Panthers and underwent immediate surgery in Charlotte, N.C.

Lawson, who was starting at nickel for Bill Bentley, was injured in the first half and did not return. Bentley was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in the opening game.

In the post-game press conference, according to reports, coach Jim Caldwell was not ready to say Lawson would be gone for the season.

That leaves the Lions with three healthy cornerbacks — Darius Slay, Rashean Mathis  and Cassius Vaughn.

The Lions have worked out cornerbacks including Champ Bailey in the last few weeks, now it looks like they will have to sign one. Or, they could also move undrafted rookie Mohammed Seisay up from the practice squad.
