The Detroit Lions offense is looking to finally break out of their slump and get in the end zone on Monday night. Their objective may have just gotten a little easier, because on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers added rookie cornerback Kevin King to their injury report, listing him as questionable with a back injury.
King has been a pleasant surprise for Green Bay as one of their starting cornerbacks. After six weeks, he was one of the top rookie cornerbacks in the league:
In addition to King, cornerback Damarious Randall is also on the injury report, listed both with an illness and a hamstring injury. Randall has started five games for the Packers this year and leads the team with three interceptions.
If one, or both, of these corners can’t go on Monday, it’ll be a huge opportunity for the Lions to take care of a below average Packers secondary. Last week, the Lions put up a season-high 411 passing yards against a good Steelers defense, but failed to score a single touchdown.
