Darius Slay injury: Lions cornerback has knee surgery

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Darius Slay had surgery last week to repair another torn meniscus.

Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay missed Sunday's game in Philadelphia after injuring his knee in practice last week. On Saturday, ESPN reported that Slay suffered another torn meniscus, and Jim Schwartz has since confirmed that Slay had surgery on his knee last Friday.

According to the Lions, Slay's status is currently week-to-week. The Lions decided against putting Slay on injured reserve following the surgery, which would have ended his season. Instead, the Lions appear hopeful that Slay will be able to return at some point this season. Considering he missed about a month or so back in May after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus, he'd probably be able to return in the playoffs if the Lions actually make it that far.

In other injury news, Schwartz doesn't believe that running back Reggie Bush and defensive end Ziggy Ansah have long-term injuries. Bush re-aggravated a calf injury before Sunday's game, whereas Ansah hurt his shoulder during the game. Whether or not they will be able to play next week against the Baltimore Ravens remains to be seen, but having an extra day off should help a bit.
