Nick Fairley Expected To Miss 3-4 Weeks

The Detroit Lions did not outline a specific timetable for when they expect Nick Fairley to return from foot surgery. They did say that Fairley is "expected to miss a significant portion of training camp," making it sound like he will miss most but potentially not all of camp. At the very least, it indicates he should be ready for the regular season, as does this tweet from John Clayton:

here is the update on Nick Fairley. He's expected to be out three to four week, according to a source close to Failey.less than a minute ago via yoono Favorite Retweet Reply


Clayton also reports that Fairley did not have surgery for a Lisfranc injury, which is what former Lions running back Kevin Jones dealt with at the end of the 2006 season and in the 2007 offseason, so that's good.

While it's a blow to the Lions to have their first-round pick out for most or all of training camp, the good news is it doesn't look like he will miss any of the regular season if everything goes according to plan. Again, this is not an ideal situation, but at least for now it doesn't look like Fairley will be sidelined beyond the next month.
