Detroit Lions DT Mike Daniels leaves game vs. Eagles, will not return

Not good news.

One of the Detroit Lions’ savviest signings this offseason was the late addition of defensive tackle Mike Daniels. The former Packer gave the Lions potentially another pass rushing threat from the interior of the defense, which was especially helpful given Da’Shawn Hand’s training camp injury.

Unfortunately, Daniels appears to have suffered an injury in Week 3’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. After Detroit’s second defensive drive, Daniels was seen limping into the locker room, and the Detroit Lions have now declared him out for the remainder of the game with a foot injury.

That should set off alarms for Lions fans, as Daniels was recovering from offseason foot surgery that ended his 2018 season early. At this point, it’s still unclear if it is the same foot injury that caused a shortened season for Daniels, but obviously it’s a somewhat serious situation since the Lions have already declared him out for the remainder of the game.

If we get any new updates, we’ll update this post with them.

UPDATE: Mike Daniels was spotted in a boot and crutches after the game by MLive’s Kyle Meinke.
