Stefan Logan needed crutches to get to the locker room after Fridays 27-12 preseason win over the Baltimore Ravens, but Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz said initial X-rays on his return mans right ankle came back negative. Well see, Schwartz said. It didnt look great on film according to our doctors, but Logans a pretty tough guy. Well just see how that comes out. Logan was injured when he planted his right leg in the ground before accepting a handoff on the Lions second touchdown drive midway through the second quarter. He ran into quarterback Matthew Stafford and crumbled to the ground in pain, but walked off the field under his own power. While Logan is coming off a down year as a return man, hes taken on a bigger role in the Lions offense this year with running back Jahvid Best out indefinitely with concussion problems.

Hopefully, that doesn’t include their arrest record. Lion Head Coach Jim Schwartz has done a great job turning the once futile Lions into a legitimate playoff contender. However, maturity plagues this team, and if the Lions are to improve on their 2011 campaign, there are going to be adjustments on and off the field. While Schwartz didn’t talk about his team off season troubles...

Who would have thought that the Lions could come back from a record-setting 0-16 season in 2008 only to make it to the playoffs in 2011?

The Detroit Lions claimed offensive lineman Bill Nagy, who was waived by the Dallas Cowboys because of an injury. Nagy was expected to compete for the starting center job but he sustained a high ankle sprain in the opening practice of training camp and had surgery on his left ankle for the second time in 10 months.
