Lions Injury News: Drayton Florence Has Surgery, Bill Bentley Could Return This Week

The first injury report of the week won't be out until the players actually practice on Wednesday, but it's safe to say cornerback Drayton Florence will be out at least this week. As first reported by Dave Birkett on Monday night, Florence suffered a broken right forearm on Sunday night in San Francisco. Jim Schwartz described the injury as one that could keep Florence out for a while, and on Tuesday, Florence had surgery.

On a positive note, it looks like cornerback Bill Bentley could return to action this week. He missed all of Week 2 with a concussion, but Jim Schwartz said in an interview on Tuesday that Bentley is going to hit the practice field this week. That doesn't necessarily mean he will be able to play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, but it's a step in the right direction.

The Lions will also be hoping to get Chris Houston and Louis Delmas back, as both players have been out since August.
