Lions Injury News: Stefan Logan On Crutches After Hurting Ankle

New, comments

During Friday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions running back Stefan Logan suffered an ankle injury. The injury happened right before Matthew Stafford dropped back to hand the ball off. Logan pulled up in pain as soon as he planted, and he collided with Stafford as a result. Although Logan walked off the field under his own power, he was later carted off to the locker room.

According to Dave Birkett, Jim Schwartz said after the game that the X-rays were negative and Logan will be evaluated again on Saturday. That's encouraging, but this is not: Anwar Richardson reports that Logan was on crutches following the game, and he had a boot on his injured ankle, according to Tim Twentyman. Logan tweeted this after the game:

If it looks like this injury may keep Logan out for more than a week or so, the Lions may need to bring in a free-agent running back for depth purposes. While Mikel Leshoure is close to returning, the Lions are running out of healthy running backs.
