Notes: Lions exploring options at kicker; Nevin Lawson suffers season-ending injury

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Like Nate Freese, Jason Hanson didn't get off to the greatest start as a kicker in the NFL. Hanson was a second-round draft pick in 1992 and joined a team that had come one victory from going to the Super Bowl the previous year. Hanson, however, made only three of six field-goal attempts in his first three regular-season games. Freese has already missed three...

Lions Notes: Rookie Nevin Lawson in good situation

ALLEN PARK, MICH. -- Nevin Lawson appears to be in a good situation for a rookie cornerback. In practice, he gets to face receivers like Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. "Heck of an experience," Lawson said of Johnson. "He's one of the best receivers and going against him definitely gets you better."
