Larry Warford suffers injury during Lions rookie minicamp

Detroit Lions offensive guard Larry Warford suffered an injury during the second day of the team's rookie minicamp.


Detroit Lions offensive guard Larry Warford went down with an injury during an 11-on-11 drill at the team's rookie minicamp on Saturday. The injury involved his left arm, and it caused Warford to stay down for more than a minute, according to MLive's Justin Rogers. Warford left practice with trainers, but he told them he was okay, according to Chris McCosky.

After practice, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz was asked about Warford's injury, and he indicated that's it nothing serious. From the Free Press:

"It wasn’t serious enough to keep him in(side)," Schwartz said. He stayed around (practice after it happened). That’s one of the things, he caught an elbow that hurt. But we’ll see. We’ll err on the side of caution when it comes to just about every injury or situation we have right now."

It remains to be seen if Warford will be able to practice on Sunday when the Lions wrap up their rookie minicamp. If he can't go, he will join fellow draft pick Darius Slay on the sideline. Slay is out after having knee surgery last week, although he was on the field going through "basic stretching" on Saturday, according to Paula Pasche.
