Scanning the Savanna

The details are sketchy, but the Detroit Lions will be able to monitor the progress of some of their injured players, but might not be able to speak to the players themselves.

Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said today that reports were accurate that NFL teams can follow the progress of the rehabilitation of injured players.

When defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was released by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month, immediately talk began amongst fans about him possibly returning to Detroit. It never seemed likely that Rogers would end up back on the Lions, but at the very least it was something to consider with not much else going on at the time.

Before, we knew that the Lions were at the bottom of the NFL in terms of talent. We knew the roster was flatly awful. But it’s been so long since we’ve seen truly competitive football in Detroit, judging the Lions against only themselves no longer makes sense.
