T.J. Lang finally gets his chairs from Matthew Stafford on the final episode of ‘Talkin’ with T.J.’

The season finale of this year’s best webseries comes to a dramatic finish. M*A*S*H. Friends. The Sopranos. Six Feet Under. Breaking Bad. These are the shows that have defined how to end a television series. But after Thursday night, all of these pathetic excuses for entertainment must step down from their collective pedestals. For there is a new finale that bests them all. If you’ve been a regular watcher of T.J. Lang’s weekly webseries “Talkin’ with T.J.” you know that there’s been an ongoing feud behind the scenes between Lang and Matthew Stafford regarding the seating...

Lions Week 17 injury report: Offensive line finally looking healthy

Lions Week 17 injury report: Offensive line finally looking healthy

It’s too late to really matter, but the Lions may have their starting five offensive linemen back. The Detroit Lions only have one game left in the season, and for only the second time all year, they may have their entire starting offensive line intact. Detroit practiced on Wednesday in preparation for the Green Bay Packers and all five starters on the offensive line practiced. T.J. Lang returned for the first time since leaving Week 15’s game against the Bears with a lingering foot injury. His replacement, Don Barclay, was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week after suffering...

Detroit Lions place Don Barclay on IR, sign TE Hakeem Valles from practice squad

Detroit Lions place Don Barclay on IR, sign TE Hakeem Valles from practice squad

Another injury on the offensive line. It has been a rough year for the Detroit Lions’ offensive line. Against the Cincinnati Bengals, the team started their 10th different personnel grouping for the offensive line. This Sunday against the Packers, they may be starting their 11th. On Tuesday, the team announced guard Don Barclay has suffered a concussion and was placed on injured reserve. Barclay is now the third offensive lineman to suffer concussion-like symptoms after finishing a complete game. T.J. Lang missed one game after experiencing symptoms over 48 hours after finishing a game....

Lions-Bengals inactives: T.J. Lang, Rick Wagner, Travis Swanson OUT vs. Cincinnati

Lions-Bengals inactives: T.J. Lang, Rick Wagner, Travis Swanson OUT vs. Cincinnati

O-line? More like NO-line. The Detroit Lions will need to win out if they want any chance at making the playoffs this year and they will have to do so with a battered up offensive line. Travis Swanson (concussion) had already been declared OUT on this week’s injury report. T.J. Lang (foot) and Rick Wagner (ankle) will also be INACTIVE against the Bengals. That leaves the Lions with only two starters on the O-line. Corey Robinson will likely fill in for Wagner at RT, and Graham Glasgow will shift over to center once again. Don Barclay and Joe Dahl will most likely fill in the remaining...

Lions-Bengals injury report: Travis Swanson OUT, T.J. Lang doubtful vs. Bengals

Lions-Bengals injury report: Travis Swanson OUT, T.J. Lang doubtful vs. Bengals

The Lions will be down two, possibly three starting offensive linemen. The Detroit Lions could be down three starters on the offensive line on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. They have already declared starting center Travis Swanson out, while right guard T.J. Lang doubtful for this week’s game. Swanson actually returned to practice on Friday, signaling that he’s close to finally getting through concussion protocol. There’s a significant chance now that he could play in the Lions’ season finale against the Green Bay Packers. Lang missed all three practices this week as he...

Lions-Bengals injury report: Travis Swanson, T.J. Lang remain out; Vontaze Burfict returns

Lions-Bengals injury report: Travis Swanson, T.J. Lang remain out; Vontaze Burfict returns

The Bengals could be getting their most violent hitter back. The Detroit Lions’ injury report remained relatively unchanged on Thursday. The only change involved veteran defensive end Dwight Freeney, who returned to practice after his normal day off to start the week. But two starters on the offensive line remain out. Center Travis Swanson continues to be sidelined due to a concussion that has already cost him one game. One has to be worried about Swanson’s future in football after a concussion sidelined him for five games last year (four regular season, one playoff). However, Caldwell...

Injury report: Lions getting healthy, while Bengals limping to finish line

Injury report: Lions getting healthy, while Bengals limping to finish line

The Lions finally have a shorter injury report than their opponent. With just two weeks left until the end of the 2017 regular season, it appears the Detroit Lions are finally nearing full health. Wednesday’s injury report included just three players limited or out with injuries: T.J. Lang, Travis Swanson and Rick Wagner. While Lang and Swanson remained absent from practice, Wagner practiced for the first time in a couple of week. But perhaps the best news for the Lions is that starting running back Theo Riddick was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice. At this point, he is...

The Detroit Lions are slowly getting healthy at the right time. The Detroit Lions returned to practice on Wednesday in preparation for Sunday’s Week 16 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. Only three players were missing from Wednesday’s session: T.J. Lang, Travis Swanson and Dwight Freeney. Lang has been dealing with a foot injury and was unable to finish Saturday’s game against the Bears. This injury has caused Lang to miss the first practice of the past two weeks, so it’s still unclear if he’ll be available to play this week. Swanson remains out after experiencing concussion...

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell hints at serious injuries: ‘There may be one or two’

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell hints at serious injuries: ‘There may be one or two’

The Lions may have suffered a serious injury against the Bears. The Detroit Lions were a little beat up following their 20-10 victory over the Chicago Bears. Receiver TJ Jones left the game late due to a shoulder injury and looked to be in considerable pain. Additionally, T.J. Lang (foot) and Theo Riddick (wrist) suffered injuries earlier in the game and did not return. While Lions head coach Jim Caldwell did not give any direct updates on any of their situations, he did very subtly suggest that a few of those injuries may be very serious. Because Caldwell isn’t very clear with his...

For a coach who usually tells reporters to check the report about injuries, and nothing else, the news appears to be grim on at least one of those guys and perhaps more.
