But if you watched the game, you likely noticed that Hutchinson clearly suffered a leg injury and he was clearly playing through some pain during the second half.
“One play, I got up and it hurt a little bit and then the next thing you know it got a little worse,” Hutchinson said.
Detroit Lions: Aidan Hutchinson comments on his thigh injury
Hutchinson was forced to miss a couple of practices this week but Lions head coach Dan Campbell did not seem too concerned.
“It’s always better to practice, so you get the looks, the live looks, but I’m not concerned because he’s mentally—he’s in it,” Campbell said. “He’s a visual learner.”
Hutchinson said that he watched some extra film to help make up for his missed practice time.
“I was taking a lot of mental reps and watching a lot of film, watching more film than I usually do to compensate for the lack of practice,” Hutchinson said.
He added that when the ball is kicked off on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, he will be fine.
“It’ll be fine," Hutchinson said.“Come game time, I don’t think we’ll be thinking about that.”
Hutchinson was a major force to be reckoned with during the Lions' win over the Commanders as he racked up a franchise rookie record three sacks, with all of them coming during the first half.
The Lions are currently a 5.5-point underdog against the Vikings.
Nation, do you think Aidan Hutchinson will continue to dominate moving forward?
