Lions injury report: Jason Fox, Don Carey banged up

Two Detroit Lions players are undergoing further tests to determine the extent of their injuries.


During his Monday press conference, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz mentioned that two players are undergoing further tests because of injuries they suffered on Sunday. Offensive tackle Jason Fox and safety Don Carey both are dealing with "soft tissue" injuries, and their status is up in the air going forward.

Fox, who started at right tackle for the Lions, only played 15 snaps before he pulled his groin. Corey Hilliard took over for Fox at right tackle and finished the game. Generally speaking, he did a pretty admirable job of filling in for Fox, who won the starting job with a strong training camp and preseason.

I'm not exactly sure when Carey suffered his injury or what exactly happened, but he played exclusively on special teams. That's because Louis Delmas and Glover Quin both were on the field for every defensive snap for the Lions. There was no need for Carey to come in at safety on Sunday.

Chances are we won't get any additional information on Fox and Carey until the first injury report of the week comes out on Wednesday.
