Offial statement from the Detroit Lions:
I don't know what to think of this. It looks like minor surgery, but a lot of missed time. At least doctors could pinpoint a problem and fix it, as opposed to being baffled. No word yet on exactly how long he'll be out. The depth at our D-line shouldn't be a problem, but I still want to see what Fairley is capable of, regardless if we need him or not.
