Jacob Lacey could miss rest of season with knee injury

Norm Hall

It appears as though the Detroit Lions will be without cornerback Jacob Lacey for the remainder of the 2012 season.

Detroit Lions cornerback Jacob Lacey has had a rough season when it comes to injuries. He has only actually missed three full games so far this season, but he has exited a few games with injuries as well. That's what happened on Sunday afternoon against the Arizona Cardinals. Lacey went down in pain after tackling Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald on the game's opening drive, and he was unable to return.

On Monday, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz indicated that although it doesn't involve a ligament, Lacey's injury "could be significant," according to Dave Birkett. What's more, Schwartz indicated that Lacey may be out for the season, which in this case simply means that Lacey may miss the final two games of 2012.

On the year, Lacey has 36 tackles, 4 pass defenses and 1 interception for the Lions. He will be a free agent after this season, and it remains to be seen if the Lions will try to re-sign him in the offseason.
