Saturday Notes: Orlovsky Likely Headed to the IR

  • It is looking more and more like Dan Orlovsky will be placed on the injured reserve in the very near future.  Orlovsky has two fractures and a torn ligament in his right thumb, and he will see another hand specialist next week to get a second opinion.  My guess is that he will head to the IR, as it seems like surgery will be necessary, meaning the Lions would be left with Daunte Culpepper, Drew Stanton, and Drew Henson at quarterback for the rest of the season.
  • As you could probably guess, Orlovsky will not play against Jacksonville tomorrow, and speculation continues to suggest that Daunte Culpepper will get the start.
  • Lions safety Kalvin Pearson was fined $7,500 by the NFL for his horse-collar tackle on Devin Hester during last week's game against the Bears.
  • Gerald Alexander's neck surgery last week was "successful."
  • Here's a shocker: Roy Williams isn't happy with his role on the Cowboys.
