[Social Robotics] [default] Taylor Decker Jersey White

It appears the fears of a long-term injury to Detroit Lions punt returner Jamal Agnew were not hasty. On Tuesday Womens Sam Martin Jersey , special teams coordinator Joe Marciano told reporters that the team was in the beginning stages of preparing a long-term replacement for Agnew as the team’s punt returner: Agnew was injured in the final quarter of Sunday’s game against the Packers when his knee bent awkwardly while tumbling towards the end zone. He was carted off after getting some help off the field. Former NFL doctor David J. Chao believes the video of the injury suggests he may have suffered a torn ACL, but the video, he admits, is inconclusive. It’s interesting that Marciano suggests Agnew’s replacement will be an internal choice. The Lions could turn to Golden Tate on punt returns, as the veteran receiver has averaged 10.7 yards per return on 90 career punt returns. The Lions could also use Brandon Powell or Ameer Abdullah on returns. Abdullah was active for the first time this past Sunday and quickly assumed kick returning duties from Agnew. He has yet to log a punt return in his NFL career http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-teez-tabor-jersey , however. You’d have to go back to his sophomore year at Nebraska to find his last punt return—way back in 2012. But the Lions won’t need to just replace Agnew on special teams. The All Pro punt returner was just starting to emerge as an option for the Lions’ nickel cornerback spot. Agnew played in at least 10 defensive snaps in all five games this year, including 44 against the Patriots. With injuries mounting up in the secondary—Teez Tabor left Sunday’s game, while Quandre Diggs played with a cast, and Tavon Wilson missed the game entirely—don’t be surprised to see the Lions make an addition to the back end of the roster. The bad injury news keeps coming in for the Detroit Lions. A day after Detroit saw Rick Wagner and Bruce Ellington return to practice, stud defensive tackle Damon Harrison sat out of practice again Womens Taylor Decker Jersey , putting his availability this week against the Minnesota Vikings in doubt. Harrison has been a revelation for the Detroit Lions’ run defense this season. Early in the year, the Lions were one of the worst teams at trying to stop the run. Over the past six weeks, they’ve been one of the best.Week 1-9: 142.5 rushing yards/game (29th), 5.14 YPC (31st)Week 10-15: 79.2 rushing yards/game (2nd), 3.4 YPC (2nd)The change hasn’t been solely due to “Snack.” The improvement of A’Shawn Robinson (sixth in PFF’s run defense grade among interior DL) has also been a huge factor in Detroit’s improved run.But with fellow interior defender Da’Shawn Hand already on injured reserve Taylor Decker Jersey White , this is a bad week for the Lions to be without Harrison. With a new offensive coordinator in tow, the Vikings have a new-found commitment to the running game, and one week in, it appears to be working. Against a poor Dolphins defense, the Viking ran the ball 40 times last week for 220 total rushing yards. There is still one more day of practice before Detroit’s home finale against the Vikings Quandre Diggs Jersey White , so it’s possible Snacks works his way back into the lineup before then, but right now the outlook doesn’t look particularly good, and that’s not good news for a Lions team that is likely already overmatched by this Vikings team.
