The Detroit Lions sit at 6-4, and are right in the thick of the NFL wild card and divisional race. During the off season, the Lions sought to improve their special teams play by signing two-time pro bowler Montell Owens. The 29-year old Owens has battled injuries all year, already spending time on the injured reserve with a designation to return list, specifically battling a lingering knee injury.
Owens made a return to the playing field two weeks ago, but aggravated his knee injury and is now slated to miss the remainder of the 2013 season. The Lions signed Owens to a two-year contract in the off season, and are looking forward to his contributions come the 2014 season.
