Is Amari Spievey the puzzy type? I hope not, we need him

Rookie corner Amari Spievey has been missing a lot of camp with to an assortment of injuries. He isn't getting any sympathy from the Lions coaching staff, especially coach Jim Schwartz .

"He's needs to push through all that stuff. This is an NFL camp. No one feels 100 percent," Schwartz said Thursday. "Learning how to deal with that is a big part of being a professional and making the jump to the NFL."

Spievey has been riddled by injuries since being drafted by the Lions in the third round. He's now battling through an oblique injury, but also has suffered from hip flexors and sore hamstrings.

He participated in individual and seven-on-seven drills Thursday, but not team activities.

"Of course you are frustrated when you're not on the field," Schwartz said. "I'd expect that he'd want to be out there showing what he can do."

It's been alluded to this past week in other articles that the Lions coaching staff are starting to look at Spievey in a different light since his 3rd round drafting. Saying he's a bust is wayyyyy premature, but with how careful Schwartz handles injured players, for Schwartz to call Spievey out, to basically tell him to get his ass on the playing field your going to hurt to some extent, that to me is earth shattering coming out of Schwartz's mouth, and he's losing faith in the player.
