Defensive end Julian Okwara suffered what appears to be a leg injury. He was tended to by trainers on the field, and then limped off with their assistance:

Okwara was selected by the Lions out of Notre Dame with the No. 67 overall pick in Round 3 of the 2020 NFL Draft. Let’s hope that he’s able to get back into the action soon!

The Detroit Lions were able to convert on a 4th-and-short to keep their opening drive live, and they were certainly added by two Jacksonville penalties. A handoff to legendary RB Adrian Peterson capped off the 10-play drive, giving Detroit the early lead.

It’s not unusual to see the Lions score first this season – let’s hope they can keep it this afternoon!

Dan Orlovsky has message for fans of teams wanting to tank

You’d be hard pressed to find an athlete currently playing the NFL who openly admits to wanting his team to “tank” in order to be able to obtain a higher draft selection.

But that doesn’t mean that no athlete who once played in the NFL will share that same mentality.

Former Detroit Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky, now an analyst with ESPN, had an interesting message for teams who have Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence on their radar – winning a game isn’t worth missing out on the chance to potentially be able to draft him.

Lawrence is the early favorite to become the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft next year in Cleveland, and could prove to be a franchise altering selection for whomever lands the first overall selection.

Let us know what you think!
