Greg Salas carted off in Lions preseason finale

In an unfortunate break for the Detroit Lions receiver, Greg Salas was carted off the field early in the game against the Buffalo Bills. Tonight was a big night for Greg Salas to shine. Unfortunately, his night was cut short with a knee injury. After hauling in two catches for 21 yards, Salas went down with a knee injury and did not return. Later, he was carted off from the sideline: Sad to see Greg Salas carted off after an impressive pre-season. His night is done with a knee injury. #Lions — Jennifer Hammond (@HammerFox2) September 4, 2015 Salas was a bit of a long-shot to make the...

There are two more quarters left in the preseason for the 2015 Buffalo Bills. Talk about them here! At halftime in their preseason finale, the Buffalo Bills are tied with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, 10-10. Ron Brooks returned a deflected interception for the opening score of the game, and after the Lions rattled off 10 straight points, Dan Carpenter kicked a field goal to tie the game up with less than a minute remaining in the half. These were my notes from the first half of the game: Andre Davis offside on opening kickoff Davis makes great catch on tipped pass Muffed snap on 4th &...

Today's Lions notes include why the Lions went after Tim Wright, Rob Sims' return to Detroit and why Nate Ness has the worst birthday. Tim Wright's performance against the Detroit Lions last year as a New England Patriots may have had influence on why the Lions traded for him.
