Lions release Nate Ness

Lions release Nate Ness

Just days after promoting him from their practice squad, the Detroit Lions decided to release Nate Ness. The Detroit Lions signed safety Nate Ness from their practice squad on Saturday. On Sunday, he played nine snaps on special teams in the Lions' game against the Carolina Panthers. And on Monday, the Lions released Ness, per the NFL's official transactions report. Given that Ness spent all of two days on the Lions' 53-man roster before being released, you could make a few conclusions about this news: Perhaps this is a sign that James Ihedigbo and/or Don Carey are going to return to...

Jim Caldwell's quotes from Monday

A recap of Jim Caldwell's comments from Monday. Below is a look at what Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell had to say on Monday. (Quotes provided by the Lions.) Opening Statement: "One of the things probably that you'll note is that, I'm not certain I'm going to be able to tell you much different than what we saw from the film. After we had a chance to analyze it and what we're going to talk about today for the most part, I think the things are all pretty obvious. We weren't nearly as sharp as we'd like to be in some phases, particularly from an offensive standpoint. I just...

Panthers DE Greg Hardy will practice, but participation Sunday unclear

The Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy missed the week two game against the Detroit Lions after the team deactivated him due to an ongoing domestic violence case. The Pittsburgh Steelers have begun preparing for the Carolina Panthers this Sunday in Charlotte, NC. Whether they will be facing a Panthers team with defensive end Greg Hardy in the lineup has yet to be seen. Head Coach Ron Rivera, who deactivated Hardy before the team's win over the Detroit Lions Sunday, said Hardy would practice this week, but his participation in the game Sunday vs. the Steelers is still unclear. Rivera...

Same old Lions or same old narratives?

With the Detroit Lions losing their first game of the year in a familiar fashion, are we seeing the same old Lions or are we relying on the same old narratives? The Detroit Lions suffered their first loss of the season on Sunday, so that means it's time for overreaction and panic. And what better way to commemorate than to dust off your "Same Old Lions" ______ . A brief look at the headlines Monday morning and that seems to be the only possible explanation for Sunday's loss. Now, I'm not so naive that I cannot see the similarities to last year. The Lions outgained the Carolina Panthers and...

Nevin Lawson injury: Lions CB likely out for season

Nevin Lawson injury: Lions CB likely out for season

Detroit Lions cornerback Nevin Lawson is likely going to miss the rest of the season after dislocating his toes on Sunday. It turns out that Detroit Lions cornerback Nevin Lawson did not dislocate his foot on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Instead, he dislocated his toes, and Lions head coach Jim Caldwell indicated on Monday that this is likely going to be a season-ending injury. Caldwell said Lawson is still in North Carolina in the hospital. Does not anticipate he'll return this year. #Lions — Michael Rothstein (@mikerothstein) September 15, 2014 This injury was quite severe...

Three takeaways from Lions' loss to Panthers

Three takeaways from Lions' loss to Panthers

Here are three things that jumped out to me on Sunday during the Detroit Lions' loss to the Carolina Panthers. The Detroit Lions lost to the Carolina Panthers by a score of 24-7 on Sunday. Here are my three main takeaways from the game: The Lions are still struggling with finishing drives Being unable to consistently finish drives with points was a huge issue for the Lions last season, and it was an issue again on Sunday. Three of the Lions' first four drives on Sunday ended without a punt, yet none of them produced points. The Lions missed two 49-yard field goals and also fumbled the...

Lions need to explore other options at kicker

Nate Freese just isn't working out at kicker, so it's time for the Detroit Lions to explore their other options at the position. The Detroit Lions' quest to replace Jason Hanson has not exactly gone very well. Last year, the Lions went with David Akers, and although he only missed five kicks (a couple of which were blocked), he was fairly inconsistent. This year, with Akers gone, the Lions spent a seventh-round pick on Nate Freese, and he has already missed three kicks in two games. I know it's early in the season, and it's early in Freese's career considering he's a rookie, but the Lions...
Nevin Lawson injury: Lions CB dislocates his foot

Nevin Lawson injury: Lions CB dislocates his foot

Detroit Lions cornerback Nevin Lawson dislocated his foot on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. The Detroit Lions have now lost two nickelbacks to injuries this week. First, Bill Bentley tore his ACL on Monday night against the New York Giants. And on Sunday, rookie Nevin Lawson dislocated his foot against the Carolina Panthers. The injury was severe enough that Lawson was already in surgery by the time Jim Caldwell met with the media following the game. Cornerback was already a thin position for the Lions before these injuries, and now there's no depth. Darius Slay, Rashean Mathis and...
Lions-Panthers final score: Detroit falls on the road, 24-7

Lions-Panthers final score: Detroit falls on the road, 24-7

The Detroit Lions made too many mistakes and lost to the Carolina Panthers by a score of 24-7 as a result. The 2014 Detroit Lions did an excellent 2013 Detroit Lions impression on Sunday. They left a lot of points on the field, had multiple costly turnovers and simply didn't do enough to score an upset over the Carolina Panthers. Instead, the Panthers pulled away in the second half en route to a 24-7 victory over the Lions, which looked quite sloppy after beating the New York Giants in impressive fashion this past Monday. The Lions opened this game with the ball and put together a decent...

Lions-Panthers inactives: Greg Hardy out for Carolina

The Detroit Lions won't have to worry about Greg Hardy on Sunday, as he has been declared inactive by the Carolina Panthers. The list of inactives is out for the Detroit Lions' game against the Carolina Panthers, and the biggest piece of news is that Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy will not play on Sunday. In the wake of his domestic violence case and all that went on in the NFL this week, the Panthers have decided to keep him out against the Lions. For the Lions, there aren't really any surprises on their list of inactives. Both Ryan Broyles and Kevin Ogletree are inactive again, and...
