Scanning the Savanna

Kris Kocurek, the defensive line coach for the Detroit Lions, is only two days older than Lions veteran defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch. In most cases, that might make for an awkward situation, especially since Kocurek, 32, is in just his first year as an NFL position coach.

Detroit Lions middle linebacker DeAndre Levy said today he’ll undergo surgery sometime this off-season to repair the groin injury that has nagged him since August.

Yep, that laughingstock of a franchise has been lights-out ATS.
