The Lions could again miss a starter for a while, and live betting services seriously hope that this doesn’t set back the team for their upcoming meetings, considering all of the injuries that they’re already putting up with.
RG Larry Warford, who suffered an injury in his left knee during the first quarter of the Lions’ 20-16 victory over the Dolphins on Sunday, might be out of the game for some time.
“He’s going to be [out] a little bit,” said coach Jim Caldwell. “They are continuing to look at him [Monday] and kind of see where we are. But hopefully young guys heal fast, so we’ll see.”
Instead, the Lions will use the services of rookie Travis Swanson. He was the one who took the place of Warford after the player suffered the injury in Detroit’s game against Miami.
The player was added to a list of Lions players who this season ended up missing time, and these include WR Calvin Johnson, RB Reggie Bush, TE’s Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria, safety James Ihedigbo, RT LaAdrian Waddle middle LB Stephen Tulloch, DT Nick Fairley, and CB’s Bill Bentley and Nevin Lawson.
These players were not able to feature for at least two meetings due to their injuries, and were either expected starters or starters when they were injured.
The coach did not say anything about Waddle’s injury. The player pulled out on Sunday during the game’s second half. Caldwell refused to say if Waddle’s injury to the calf was aggravated – something that cost the player almost all of the season’s first month.
Caldwell also mentioned that RB Bush was a bit limited due to injury in the second half of the Lions’ win against the Dolphins on Sunday – something that gives the fans another reason for concern.
“He just got a little nicked up during the course of the game,” said the coach. “So he just wasn’t able to do quite as much as he’d like.”
Bush carried the ball four times for 20 yards, and for 5 yards he was able to make one catch.
The football world hopes that all of these injuries don’t get in the way of how Lions continue to perform, but live betting services were amazed to see how the team was able to fight back this season, and hope to see all of them make very swift recoveries.
