ALLEN PARK, Mich. Its not going to happen in Detroit because Matthew Stafford is clearly established as the face of the franchise.
But Shaun Hill is good enough to get a quarterback controversy started in other places.
When you see him do things like he did Sunday, leading the Lions to two touchdowns in the final 18 seconds to force overtime, it makes you wonder why Hill isnt...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Jason Hanson rarely, if ever, practices punting anymore.
But there he was Sunday afternoon, stepping in as the Detroit Lions emergency punter, and proving yet again why hes one of the NFLs consummate professionals.
I wasnt comfortable at all, Hanson said of the added responsibility. I was glad just to catch the ball and get it off, at least get out of the way...
He wasn't limping Wednesday and he was back to practice Thursday.
All signs point to Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford returning for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field.
Stafford came out of Sunday's overtime loss at Tennessee in the final minutes of regulation when he aggravated an ailing right hip. He also missed Wednesday's practice...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Detroit Lions quarterback Mathew Stafford is dealing with a hip injury and there’s a good chance that he doesn’t practice much this week, but still plays on Sunday.
“I would be surprised if he practiced Wednesday or Thursday, but ultimately, when the game rolls around, he’s a tough guy to count out. The injury looks to be more of a hip...
Last week: 21 (-2)
Every year a team goes from in the playoffs to winning 5 games or fewer. The Lions, one of my preseason overrated teams, are a finalist for that spot, but I have them finishing a little bit better than that. However, their defense is atrocious just like last year and Matt Stafford, even if he doesn’t get hurt again, is not going to throw for 5000...
The Detroit Lions have placed punter Ben Graham on injured reserve and re-signed Nick Harris to take over the job, Justin Rogers of Mlive.com reports.
Graham was injured in the opening quarter of the Detroit Lions' 44-41 overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans.
While stepping into his first punt of the game, Graham injured his calf, causing the kick to lack distance and hang...
The Detroit Lions lost starting QB Matthew Stafford to injury Sunday, but they are trying to keep his status hush-hush for this week’s game against the Vikings.
According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz didn’t have any comments on the results of Mathew Stafford’s MRI. He said he’ll make a determination on his status by Friday.
At this point I think Stafford will be ready to go next week.
"Music City Miracle" 2.0, a kickoff return, a failed fourth down attempt in overtime, and much more came from this game. Aside from being what could go down as one of the wildest games all season long, the game had a lot of interesting fantasy situations unravel.Detroit Lions:Welcome to the NFL Mikel Leshoure. After serving his two game suspension, the Lions' came out...
The Lions placed P Ben Graham on injured reserve and signed veteran P Nick Harris.
Graham suffered a calf injury in Sundays loss to the Titans. PK Jason Hanson took over punting duties the rest of the game. Graham had six punts on the season for an average of 41.3 yards.
Harris, 34, punted in 11 games for the Jaguars last season, averaging 42.7 yards a punt. Source: Pro Football...
Cue the fish alien.This game is a trap for the Detroit Lions.They gave up a large number of big plays last week against the Titans, and were down 14 points with 30 seconds left to play. They got lucky and landed a series of miracles to reach overtime, but they were easily beaten in that game.The Minnesota Vikings did the exact opposite this weekend - they stunned everyone by beating...
Mikel Leshoure should be a solid flex play for the rest of the season, he needs to be added to your roster right away.
Despite the fact that I am still fuming about the way the Green Bay Packers were so blatantly robbed of a much-needed and hard earned road win Monday Night in Seattle, we must solider on and look ahead to week four in the National Football League.

3 for 12
That is the week three Detroit Lions stat of the week. The Lions were just three for 12 on third down, and that simply is not going to get it done. That means that drives sputter out, that means that the Lions are first not getting enough down on their first two downs, and it also means this is just a big play offense.
They sure did try to change that that this week at the...
