Lions Notes: Nick Fairley Begins Light Running

  • Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley did some light running today, indicating that he is progressing from his foot injury. He isn't sure when he will return, though.

    "No idea," Fairley said today, when asked how soon he’ll be back on the field. "I’m just working with the trainers and everything now. I’m trying to get everything to 110%, so when I get out there, I’ll be ready to go for the long run."

    Fairley did say he has been watching a lot of film and has been studying the playbook in order to not be too far behind when he can finally return to the field.
  • Running back Mikel Leshoure visited the team this week and said the doctors have told him he will "have no problem coming back from this injury."
  • Earlier this week, Jim Schwartz had this to say about the Lions' performance against the Buccaneers:

    "It’s all about how we play," Schwartz said at his weekly news conference today. "We can play a lot better than that. We didn’t show our best. It’s one thing if you physically get beat. A corner gets beat on a touchdown pass, offensive line gives up a sack, wide receiver drops a ball, running back fumbles a ball. Those are things we all learn to live with as coaches.

    "But some of the things that happen in the game didn’t show us in the best light, and that’s my job to make sure that doesn’t happen again."

    It's nice that the Lions are now at a point where the head coach is calling out his team even after a win. Just last year it was a major accomplishment if the Lions won a game, especially on the road. Now it's not necessarily just about getting a win; it's also about how you win.
