The Detroit Lions are no strangers to injuries, and today is no different. Here is a rundown of the latest injuries for the team.
The Detroit Lions have suffered another injury
The Detroit Lions have suffered another injury to one of their key players. Today, it was announced that linebacker DeAndre Levy will miss the rest of the season with a hip injury.
This is devastating news for the Lions, as Levy was one of their best defensive players. He was a key part of their defense that helped them make the playoffs last year. Now, without him, they will have a hard time stopping opposing offenses.
The Lions have already been hit hard by injuries this season, as they have lost several other key players to injuries. This latest one will only make things worse for them as they try to fight their way back into playoff contention.
This time, it’s to their starting quarterback
The Detroit Lions Injury Today announced today that their starting quarterback, Matthew Stafford, will miss the rest of the season with a back injury. This is a huge blow to the Lions, who were already struggling to keep up with the competition in the NFC North.
Stafford has been one of the most durable quarterbacks in the NFL over the past few years, but his luck seems to have run out this season. He first injured his back in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers and re-aggravated the injury in last week’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
The Lions have not yet announced who will start in place of Stafford, but it is likely that backup quarterback Jake Rudock will get the nod. Rudock has looked good in limited action this season and should be able to provide some stability for a Lions team that is reeling from this latest setback.
The Lions will have to rely on their backup quarterback to get them through the rest of the season
The Detroit Lions will have to rely on their backup quarterback to get them through the rest of the season. The Lions lost their starting quarterback, Matthew Stafford, to a back injury in Week 9. He is expected to miss at least the next six weeks.
The Lions have not yet announced who their backup quarterback will be. However, they do have several options. They could choose to start veteran backup Shaun Hill, or they could go with third-stringer Dan Orlovsky. Orlovsky has more experience than Hill, but Hill has been with the team longer.
Whichever quarterback the Lions choose, they will need him to step up and play well. The Lions are currently in first place in the NFC North, but they cannot afford to lose any more games if they want to stay in first place.
How the Lions can still make the playoffs despite this injury
Even though the Detroit Lions suffered a big injury today, there is still hope that they can make the playoffs. Here are some things that need to happen in order for that to occur:
First and foremost, the Lions need to win their remaining games. This will be no easy task, but it is possible.
Secondly, they need some help from other teams. Specifically, they need the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings to lose some games.
If all of this happens, then there is a good chance that the Lions will make the playoffs despite their injury. So while it may not be ideal, all hope is not lost for Detroit fans.
The Detroit Lions suffered another injury today when linebacker Jarrad Davis went down with an ankle injury. This is just the latest in a long string of injuries for the Lions, who have been decimated by injuries this season. With Davis out, the Lions will be even thinner at linebacker, and their already struggling defense will have to take on even more responsibility. Let’s hope that the team can get healthy soon and start putting together some wins.
