Lions Notes: Jason Fox To Have Surgery On Injured Knee

  • Lions offensive tackle Jason Fox is headed to injured reserve with a right knee injury that happened during practice on Thursday. Nothing has been scheduled yet, but Fox is planning on having surgery and is hopeful that he will be ready for next year's OTAs.
  • Ryan Donahue "shut it down" after trying to punt on Friday. This is why the Lions signed Robert Malone, who is expected to be the starting punter on Sunday.
  • In addition to Malone, the Lions also worked out punters Matt Dodge and Glenn Pakulak on Thursday.
  • Jason Hanson looks as though he will play on Sunday considering no kicker has been signed. Hanson was asked about his knee injury on Thursday and said this:
    "It’s terrible timing," Hanson said. "I can’t believe that it happened, and I said this to everyone at the Lions: I’m super sorry. Terrible week for this to happen, but my guilt level is pretty low, as far as I didn’t feel I was doing anything to hurt the team."
    Hanson said he wasn't "out riding a four-wheeler and goofing around" when he suffered the injury. Rather, he was with his kids. He declined to give specifics on the cause of the injury, though.
  • Nickelback is officially in as the halftime performer for the Thanksgiving game. The national anthem will be sung by Lauren Alaina, who was apparently once a runner-up on "American Idol."
