Lions notes: Alex Henery, LaAdrian Waddle, more

Lions notes looks at Alex Henery, LaAdrian Waddle and much more.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports
  • With the Detroit Lions signing Alex Henery, they now have four former Nebraska players: Henery, Dominic Raiola, Ndamukong Suh and Mohammed Seisay.

  • Henery and Suh are quite familiar with each other from their time at Nebraska.

  • The Lions actually called Henery on Sunday night, so that tells you how much they wanted to make a change at kicker. (It also tells you that he had an impressive workout last week, as evidenced by the fact that he made a 60-yard field goal during it.)

  • Jim Caldwell thinks Nate Freese could still have a good NFL career, but the Lions don't have any plans to keep him around on their practice squad.

  • LaAdrian Waddle is planning to practice this week, which is a sign that he's getting closer to returning from his calf injury. Hopefully things will go well in practice and he will in fact return as the Lions' starting right tackle this week.

  • This is a beautiful sight:
  • Before Sunday, it had been a while since the Lions last won two straight games over the Green Bay Packers.
  • The injury gods have not been kind to the Lions this season.
  • Corey Fuller took the blame for Matthew Stafford's interception that deflected off his hands and right to a Packers defender.
  • To keep Rodney Austin around as a member of their practice squad, the Lions ponied up a bit more money than usual.
  • The Minnesota Vikings are going to be starting Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback for the foreseeable future with Matt Cassel out with a broken foot.
