Dan Campbell gives injury update on Kerby Joseph, Mohamed Ibrahim, and Marvin Jones Jr.
On Sunday, the Detroit Lions suffered an embarrassing 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, but the game was not the only thing the Lions lost as Kerby Joseph and Mohamed Ibrahim both left with injuries. On Monday, Campbell spoke to reporters and he gave an update on both of those players.
What Campbell Said About Kerby Joseph
First, the good news—the safety Kerby Joseph has cleared concussion tests, ensuring his availability for Week 8. This is a relief for the Lions, as Joseph's role is vital in their defensive lineup.
“He’s good, he’s cleared,” Campbell said.
What Campbell Said About Mohamed
According to Campbell, Mohamed Ibrahim, who suffered a dislocated hip, has undergone successful surgery. While his return to football may take some time due to the associated pain, the fact that he can move his hip is encouraging news.
“They just needed to put him under to get the hip back in, which it did. It’s good. So he’s obviously walking around. So that’s good news,” Campbell said.
“It’ll be a while, still a lot of pain. But at least he can move that hip.”
