Report: Golden Tate likely to miss ‘a few weeks’ with shoulder injury

Report: Golden Tate likely to miss ‘a few weeks’ with shoulder injury

The Lions could be without their No. 1 receiver for the next few games. One of the more significant injuries the Detroit Lions suffered during their Week 6 loss to the New Orleans Saints was when Golden Tate left the game with a shoulder injury. Tate took a big shoulder-to-shoulder hit from Saints linebacker Craig Robertson on a short 7-yard gain in the third quarter. Tate did not return and was not made available in the locker room after the game, suggesting his injury was significant. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the injury to his right shoulder appears serious enough...

PODcast didn’t like this Lions-Saints game, but is the NFC North wide open?

It wasn’t good. It wasn’t good at all. This one’s not going to sit well in our guts, much like bad orange chicken. Trust me, there’s talk of food on this PODcast, but you’re going to have to get through our commiserations about this Lions team before you do that. The comeback against the Saints was meaningless, and the Lions are hurting in a bad way. This game wasn’t good and we chomp through it all, and along the way we tend to yell at each other.

Lions-Saints snap counts: Injuries shuffle offensive line, Teez Tabor sees the field

Lions-Saints report card: Time to admit it, this team is bad

Lions-Saints report card: Time to admit it, this team is bad

The same problems keep popping up. Maybe it’s time to change our expectations. Before I get into this week’s grades for the Detroit Lions’ game against the New Orleans Saints, we need to talk. The Lions have been completely outmatched in three of their four last games. A flurry of late-game scores in all three games have helped distract some—myself included—to the real problems with this team. There’s no way around it. Over the past four games, this Detroit Lions team has been bad. Not just 1-3 record bad, but should-have-been-blown-out bad. The Saints, Panthers and Falcons...

Lions-Saints player of the game: Who gets the game ball?

Just a handful of players had a good game against the Saints. Let’s honor one of them. For the second straight week, the Detroit Lions dropped an egg and looked just plain awful against good competition. As far as a team effort, it was a flat, uninspiring performance. But there were a few good individual performances against the New Orleans Saints worth praising, so let’s hand out a game ball like we always do. Here are the Game Ball standings through five games: Darius Slay - 4Matthew Stafford - 4Glover Quin - 3Ezekiel Ansah - 3Anthony Zettel - 3Jarrad Davis - 3Darren Fells - 2Jamal...

An updated look on the key injuries from the Lions-Saints game. The Detroit Lions didn’t only lose a much-needed win in the NFC on Sunday, but they lost the services of three key starters due to injury. The team is always very scarce on details regarding injuries, but here’s what we know about the key injuries as of Sunday night. Glover Quin Quin suffered a very serious-looking concussion in the third quarter of the game.

Detroit Lions vs. New Orleans Saints stock report

In a roller coaster of a game, the Lions had plenty of ups and downs so we’re going to look at who’s up and who’s down now. The Detroit Lions were underdogs coming into the Saints game, but very few could have predicted just how incredible this game would turn out to be. The Saints were burying the Lions until a Jamal Agnew return touchdown put them right back into it. The Lions would claw their way back to within one score of the Saints in their home, but the injuries on the offensive line would eventually catch up to the wounded Lions and they would fall back to lose by two scores....

Lions-Saints final score: Detroit’s wild comeback falls short, 52-38

Lions-Saints final score: Detroit’s wild comeback falls short, 52-38

That was technically a football game, I’m told. That’s not exactly the way the Detroit Lions wanted to head into the bye week. Detroit was dominated from front to back against the New Orleans Saints, eventually losing 45-17. Let’s get to the recap. First half The game got off to a suboptimal start after a Saints punt pinned the Lions inside their own 2-yard line. After gaining just one yard on their first two plays, Matthew Stafford dropped back, couldn’t find anyone open and was promptly sacked in the end zone. To make matters worse, he fumbled the ball and it was immediately...

The entire Detroit Lions offensive line is injured

The entire Detroit Lions offensive line is injured

It started with T.J. Lang. It spread to just about everyone else. As if the Detroit Lions getting blown out wasn’t enough. As if the injury to Glover Quin didn’t ruin your Sunday. The Lions offensive line was completely decimated in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. It started when right guard T.J. Lang was a surprise inactive after dealing with a back injury all week. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. In the second half of Sunday’s game, the house of cards that was the Lions’ offense live crashed to the ground. First, right tackle Rick Wagner left the game...

Lions injury update: Glover Quin knocked out of Saints game with concussion

Glover Quin’s ironman streak could be in danger. In a game Detroit Lions fans would like to completely erase from the record books forever, the worst news may have come early in the third quarter. Glover Quin attempted to make a tackle on Alvin Kamara and was promptly run over by the Saints running back and another Lions player. Quin was not moving immediately after the play and looked to be very seriously injured. As Quin remained down for several minutes, Lions players took a knee besides him, hoping for the best for the defensive leader of the team. Eventually, Quin would get up and...

Lions-Saints inactives: Matthew Stafford officially ACTIVE; Lang, Golladay OUT

The Lions will be without their starting right guard, but no surprises elsewhere. After suffering an ankle injury to the Carolina Panthers last week, Matthew Stafford was visibly limping and in pain, enduring shot after shot from the terrifying Panthers defensive line. Despite being listed as “Questionable” on this week’s injury report, there was never any doubt whether Stafford would be available against the New Orleans Saints. It takes a lot more than a minor ankle injury to keep him out of the game. Starting offensive linemen, Rick Wagner (shoulder) and T.J. Lang (back) were also...

Sunday open thread: Which quarterback finishes with a better day: Stafford or Brees?

Sunday open thread: Which quarterback finishes with a better day: Stafford or Brees?

Who will carry his team to victory on Sunday? The Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints are at a point in their franchise history where they know what they have at the quarterback position. In fact, they’ve been that way for years now. The two teams have worked tirelessly to grow an identity beyond their signal-caller. The Saints are finally building a young, talented defense for once, while the Lions are doing their best to build an adequate offensive line and hopefully develop a running game with it. But try as they might to fight it, it all comes back to the quarterbacks. Drew Brees...
