Week 3 Injury Update: Detroit Lions’ Darius Slay clears concussion protocol

When Detroit Lions defensive back Darius Slay suffered a concussion against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2, the fear was that he could miss extended time. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Slay has cleared concussion protocol and is eligible to suit up against the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Lions’ CB Darius Slay has cleared concussion protocol, but no final decision yet on whether he will play tonight vs. Patriots, per source. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 23, 2018 As Schefter noted, just because Slay has been cleared to play does not mean he will do...

Report: Darius Slay clears concussion protocol, may play vs. Patriots

It’s looking more likely that the Lions will have their best corner Sunday night. As of Friday afternoon, Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay’s status was quite unclear. He was officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots after suffering a concussion last week. Because he was a limited participant in Friday’s practice, it seemed unlikely he would pass through the entire concussion protocol before game day. However, after Friday’s practice he met with media—bright lights and all—which seemed to leave open the possibility that he could clear in...

The Patriots will be missing 3 defensive starters vs. Detroit Lions

The Lions are catching another injury-related break. The Detroit Lions may not only catch a break with Darius Slay, who has reportedly cleared concussion protocol making him eligible (but not certain) to play Sunday night, but the New England Patriots’ injury situation could also help Detroit’s chances on Sunday. Late Saturday night, the Patriots downgraded three defensive starters to OUT, confirming that they will not play. Defensive end Trey Flowers, safety Patrick Chung and cornerback Eric Rowe will all miss “Sunday Night Football.” For Chung and Flowers, this doesn’t come as...

Patriots vs Lions: Trey Flowers among three defensive starters downgraded to “out”

New England will miss three of its core defenders today. The New England Patriots are entering their week three tilt against the Detroit Lions a little bit dinged up. One player has already been declared out on Friday’s final injury report – tight end Jacob Hollister –, and now three more men will join him on the list of inactives. According to the Patriots themselves, they have ruled out defensive edge Trey Flowers, strong safety Patrick Chung, and cornerback Eric Rowe. All three men suffered their respective injuries during last Sunday’s loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars:...

How the Patriots can incorporate Josh Gordon into their offense

The Patriots made headlines when they traded for troubled Browns receiver Josh Gordon. Gordon broke out with 87 catches for 1646 yards and 9 TD on 159 targets for Cleveland in 2013. That performance included a 10/151/2 day against Aqib Talib and the Patriots, in which NE barely escaped with a 26-21 victory. Since that year, Gordon has only seen 93 targets and 43 catches due to his own battles with addiction to recreational drugs and alcohol. With the Patriots receiving corps from Super Bowl LI and LII decimated by free agent departures, suspensions, and injuries, the team took a flyer on...

Patriots notebook: Cornerback Cyrus Jones may be asked to play some safety during his second go-round in New England

FOXBORO — The Patriots brought back Cyrus Jones to return punts, but they may have another role in mind for him, as well.At the beginning of yesterday’s practice, Jones was seen working with the safeties instead of the cornerbacks.“Yeah, I got out there a little bit at safety, just because we’re short right now,” Jones said. “I’m not really sure what coaches want to do with that, but whatever they ask me to do, I’m going to try to do it to the best of my ability.”As Patrick Chung deals with a concussion, the Pats are a bit shorthanded at safety.
