Dan Campbell gives injury update on David Montgomery and Malcolm Rodriguez

Prior to practice, Campbell told reporters that neither Montgomery nor Rodriguez suffered a serious injury last week, but both players will sit out of today’s practice. Campbell also noted that there will be a total of 10-12 players who will not practice on Thursday.

Bottom Line: Good news on the injury front

The bottom line here, obviously, is that Montgomery and Rodriguez both avoided an injury that will keep them out for an extended period of time. Considering that we are only in June, it is wise for the Lions to be extremely cautious with any injuries so that the players are ready for training camp.
