Joseph Fauria injured his ankle chasing a urinating puppy

When a puppy is around the house there’s a constant state of high alert. How long has it been since he was last outside?  What did he do outside? Should he go outside now? Why is he not outside now? Those are all questions asked repeatedly, by the minute, because the alternative is some urine (or worse) on your nice hardwood floor. So anyone who’s ever owned a puppy feels Joseph...

The Lions are also in sole possession of first place in the NFC North after a 24-17 win at the New York Jets on Sunday.

Joseph Fauria Blames His Ankle Injury On His Dog

Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria — most-known for his elaborate touchdown dances — was sidelined with an ankle injury during yesterday’s hard-fought victory over the New York Jets. Coming into the game, we knew that Fauria’s injury happened at his home, which was pretty bizarre since nearly all injuries to NFL players occur on the field during game action or at practice...

After averaging 23 snaps in the first three games, Lions rookie Eric Ebron should have a chance to display his potential Sunday against the Jets.

Can Joseph Fauria be reliable tight end for Lions?

He's a major red-zone threat -- 6-foot-7 with legs that look more like stilts -- and he's a fan favorite for his dance moves during touchdown celebrations. But can Joseph Fauria develop into a reliable tight end in all situations for the Detroit Lions? Can he block? Can he run quality routes to get open anywhere on the field, not just down near the goal line where he can...

Lions TE Joseph Fauria working on his blocking technique

The book on Joseph Fauria last year was simple — red-zone threat, not a field stretcher, allergic to blocking — and in retrospect a bit unfair. The Lions signed Fauria as an undrafted rookie out of UCLA and got more than anyone imagined for their $12,500 investment. Fauria made the team as the No. 3 tight end, and he climbed the depth chart after Tony Scheffler got hurt. His...

Van Noy is highly touted and did very...

Poll: Who do you think will be the Detroit Lions breakout offensive player in 2014?

Every season there is a breakout player, for nearly every team. For the Detroit Lions last year, their unexpected surprises were Joseph Fauria and DeAndre Levy. While Levy was a starter going into the season, no one really expected what the Lions got from him and he was a big part of their 6-3 start in 2013. There are plenty of candidates on this team to be that breakout player of...
