Lions Notes: Darren McFadden Likely Out On Sunday

  • Raiders running back Darren McFadden is not expected to play on Sunday against the Lions. (He has been out since October with a foot injury.)
  • Lions wide receiver Titus Young is one of the nominees for the Week 14 Pepsi Rookie of the Week. Yesterday he tweeted a picture of a Pepsi can with his picture on it in honor of being one of the nominees.
  • The NFL has suspended James Harrison for one game for his vicious helmet-to-helmet hit on Colt McCoy. Suspending him was the right move, but here's my question: How does Ndamukong Suh get two games for a stomp that barely even made contact with the Packers player when Harrison is only getting one game for his fifth (!) illegal hit on a quarterback in the last three years? Suh deserved his suspension, but to me Harrison should get more than one game for his headhunting.
  • Former Bears and Saints defensive end Alex Brown worked out for the Lions earlier this week. He thought he "killed the workout," but unless other injuries happen, it doesn't seem like the Lions will be adding any additional defensive ends to the team.

    UPDATE: Adam Caplan reports that Vernon Gholston also worked out for the Lions.
  • Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is expected to miss the rest of the regular season after injuring his knee. This means it's unlikely the Lions will have to worry about Jennings when they play at Green Bay in Week 17. Of course, the Packers have several other talented receivers, so losing Jennings isn't necessarily a huge blow for Green Bay.
