One of the immediate concerns that was raised when the Detroit Lions selected Mississippi State cornerback Darius Slay in the second round was that he tore his meniscus in early March. The injury happened at Mississippi State's pro day, and NFL Network's Mike Mayock suggested that Slay might not even be ready for camp because of the injury.
Based on what Slay and Lions general manager Martin Mayhew have recently said about the injury, the concerns seem overblown. Mayhew expects Slay to take part in the Lions' rookie minicamp from May 10-12, and Slay himself has said that his knee feels good.
On the concern with his knee: "It's not true. I'm pretty sure I'm ready for training camp. Right now, I've had like two individual workouts after my meniscus. So, I mean, I feel pretty good. I feel fluent. I'm moving good when I turn, no problem. So, I feel pretty healthy right now.'
On if he could do a full practice right now: "Yes, sir. I could do a full workout right now."
Slay isn't expecting to have surgery to fix the injury, which is a good sign in terms of the severity of it. It seems like a relatively minor injury all things considered, and it's certainly nowhere near as bad as something like an ACL tear.
It remains to be seen if this injury will bother Slay at all once training camp arrives, but if surgery isn't expected to be necessary and Slay should be good to go for the minicamp next week, I can't imagine it will be a major issue going forward.
