Cause for concern: Lions CB Emmanuel Moseley injured vs. Panthers
The Detroit Lions have a firm grasp on their Week 5 matchup against the Carolina Panthers, holding a commanding 28-10 lead as they've reached halftime. Nonetheless, a significant concern has arisen as one of their key players, cornerback Emmanuel Mosley, was injured and will not be returning.
Mosely suffered the injury
Mosley has previously endured a substantial leg injury, tearing the ACL in his left knee during his tenure with the San Francisco 49ers. This afternoon's game marked his debut as a member of the Detroit Lions.
He will not be returning to today's game
The Lions initially listed Mosley as questionable for his return to today's game, a contest in which they are firmly in control, dominating the winless Panthers.
Unfortuantely, it wouldn't be much longer before they would confirm that he will not return.
TL;DR (too long didn't read)
- The Detroit Lions are in complete command of the game against the winless Carolina Panthers at Ford Field.
- However, there is cause for concern as cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, making his debut with the Lions, has sustained a knee injury and has been downgraded to out
- This injury is particularly troubling considering his history of a previous torn ACL in his career.
Bottom Line: Let's hope he's okay
It would indeed be disheartening to witness a player in whom the Lions have high hopes, especially one making his debut this afternoon, suffer another long-term injury akin to what he has experienced in his career before.
We can only hope that this injury proves to be not too severe, and that he can make a swift return to the field of play.
