Detroit Lions DT Corey Williams Out Sunday

DT Corey Williams had knee surgery and is out for Sunday's game vs. The Vikings. Corey played real well vs. the Rams in week # 1 but struggled vs. San Fran and the Titans. This will give Sammie Hill and Nick Fairley increased playing time.

Corey has 6 tackles 2 sacks and 1 FF in 2012
He has 73t 5.5 sacks in 34 starts.

Sammie Hill has 47 games 15 starts
81 tackles 4 sacks

Nick Fairley 13 games
17 tackles 2 sacks 1 FR
Get better Corey

I feel the following players will be inactive Sunday

DT Corey Williams
S Louis Delmas

LB Travis Lewis

OG Corey Hillard
OT Jason Fox

WR Ryan Broyles

QB Kellen Moore

Detroit Lions sign Nick Harris and IR Ben Graham

The Lions have re-signed Nick Harris. He punted for us from 2003-2010. Harris lost his job in the preseason in 2011 to rookie Ryan Donohue. Last season, he punted for the Jags.

Here is a tribute:

2011 72 punts, 42.7 ave 37.9 Net for the Jags

Nick held for Hanson, not well on this play.

Harris is a valued member of the 2008 0-16 team.
He has 537 punts for the Lions ave 42.9
Welcome Back to Detroit

Lions place P Ben Graham on injured reserve ending his season. Graham signed to replaced Robert Malone following the Bears game last season.

Here is a tribute:

Graham played 10 games for the Lions and ave 39.4 yards per punt.
His last punt was returned for a TD

Just when you thought it was safe to be a Detroit Lions fan

I have witnessed some crazy stuff as a 41 year old Detroit Lions fan.

Dave Williams KOR for touchdown on Thanksgiving 1980. The only time that has every happened.

Dave Williams takes it to the house in the Dome

Eddie Murray wide right in the 1983 playoffs

Monte prays, Eddie does not answer

Don Muhlbach's botched snap vs. The Vikings 2004

Nick Harris watches the game slip from his hands.
 Dan Orlvosky runs out the end zone and still does not know it to lose 10-12 at Minnesota. The Lions went 0-16

That is two points for the Viks

The season opener for 2010. Matthew Stafford destroyed for the season, Calvin's process drop.

Remember two feet, two knees and a hand is not enough
However, this one takes the cake. Here is a run down.

Punt return for a touchdown on a lateral. Ben Graham hurts his calf, out for the game.

Tommie Campbell celebrates his punt return TD

Jared Cook runs thru Amari Speivey for a 61 yard TD.

The Lions take the lead but give up a 105 yard KOR after Jonte Green gets destroyed.

Darius Reynaud KOR TD

Nate Washington catches a 71 yard TD pass off the back of Jacob Lacey. John Wendling runs under the play.

Jacob Lacey looks at Washington's chest. Wendling goes underneath.

Al Verner takes the ball from Bobbles Pettigrew for a 72 yard FR TD. Stafford hurts ankle on the play.

Al Verner steals the ball from Bobbles

The Lions get a break and Shaun Hill's pick is called back. A TD to Mega gives a chance.

A recovered onside by Spievey leads to a Hail mary to Titus Young.

It is answered but not for long

The Titans win the toss and the Lions hold the Titans to FG despite two defensive penalties. Thanx to a new NFL rule the Lions can still win.

They drive down the field and Mikel Leshoure falls one inch short of a 1st down. The Lions want to try to draw Tennessee offside but Dom Raoila snaps the ball. Shaun Hill fumbles and we lose.

Hill Fumbles

Miscommunication. Dom snapped the ball. We lose.

That is the first time in NFL History that has happened. The 46 points in the 4th Quarter is the 2nd most in NFL history next to Lions and Bears in 2007.
