Whether you have accepted it or not, social media is a big part of sports news now. Never was this more apparent when we located a Snapchat of Eric Ebron in a happy mood, suggesting initial reports on a torn Achilles may have been inaccurate. As it turns out, that Snapchat proved to be valuable, as Ebron appears to have escaped with a minor injury.
With this in mind, we tracked down as many social media accounts for the Detroit Lions players as possible. This isn't a complete list, nor is it 100 percent official. However, we only listed accounts that were either verified or contained content that only the player would likely have access to. If we weren't pretty sure the account belonged to the player, we left it off the list. Regardless, we marked each unverified account anyways. Snapchat does not have a verification process, but most of the accounts were taken from mentions in their Twitter or Instagram accounts.
If you know of any additional accounts, please add them in the comments and we will update the post.
