Lions' Jason Fox Visiting Specialist In North Carolina

Detroit Lions offensive tackle Jason Fox is in North Carolina visiting Dr. Robert Anderson, the man who performed surgery on Nick Fairley's foot last week. Fox hurt his foot during a drill on Saturday morning and was seen wearing a walking boot and using crutches after practice.

Considering they both injured their foot and visited the same specialist, the obvious conclusion to jump to is that Fox also broke his foot. However, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz says Fox's injury is something different, although he declined to expand on that statement.

Schwartz on Fox: "His is a different thing than Nick’s, but I’m not going to get too far into it until we 100 percent evaluation on it."less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply


Considering Jeff Backus is still injured and Gosder Cherilus is also dealing with soreness in his knee, the hope is Fox's injury is nothing serious. Depth at offensive tackle is thin enough as it is, and after having such a good start to training camp, it would be tough for Fox to miss an extended period of time.
