During the first quarter of last Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions guard T.J. Lang was forced to leave with a brain injury and was placed in concussion protocol.

Lang, who has a history of brain injuries, has not practiced at all this week and on Friday, reports surfaced that he will be ruled “out” for Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers.

Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford ‘fires back’ at Boomer Esiason following criticism

On Thursday afternoon, former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason joined The Valenti Show on 97.1 The Ticket and talked to host Mike Valenti about Detroit Lions quarterback, Matthew Stafford.

Specifically, Esiason questioned Stafford’s leadership abilities.

“Matthew Stafford is a great QB, he can throw it with anybody. But I want Matt Patricia to hold him accountable. You know, that it’s not gonna be all about you in the fourth quarter, son. I need you to be careful, I need you to be energetic. One of the reasons why I think Tom Brady screams a lot on the sideline is because I think he tries to whip himself up into a frenzy. I don’t see that from Matthew. I see a lot of Eli Manning in Matthew, like ‘oh it’s ok’… No it’s not ok. It’s your team and you have to get your guys to believe in you and that you’re gonna win. I think Matt Patricia being around Tom Brady all those years knows what consonant professional is watching the greatest of all time. He’s gotta try and impart some of that wisdom on Matthew and hopefully, Matthew will buy into it, and he’ll buy into what his coach is selling. And not be a locker room lawyer… and be a locker room leader.”
