JUST IN: Detroit Lions Week 9 Injury Report revealed

Published

on

This coming Sunday, the Detroit Lions will play a very important game on the road against the Minnesota Vikings. With a win, the Lions would climb back to the .500 mark, while a loss would drop them to 3-5 with just eight games left to play.

On Thursday, the Lions were back at practice and as you can see below, all hands were on deck, though six players were limited.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Will Ezekiel Ansah make his long-awaited return to the lineup on Sunday against the Vikings or will be miss yet another week of action? Only time will tell.

Detroit Lions’ GM Bob Quinn proves he’s focused on WINNING a Super Bowl

When the 2017 NFL season was finally in the books and the offseason was upon us, one of the biggest questions was whether or not the Detroit Lions and Golden Tate would come to an agreement on a contract extension.

Well, that time passed without the two sides reaching an agreement and the 2018 season began. Then As the Oct. 30 NFL trade deadline approached, the Tate trade rumors started to swirl around and I started getting nervous.

Avoid the big mistake

You see, extending (or re-signing) Tate is a move I have been firmly against from Day 1. So, when rumors started flying that Tate could end up being traded, I got a bit excited. Even if we were only able to get back a fourth-round pick, I would have been excited, mostly because it meant Lions GM Bob Quinn was not willing to waste a ton of cash on a receiver who will be 31 for the 2019 season. After all, extending an “older” receiver who is likely going to demand a 3-4 year deal worth $12 million + per season would have been a big mistake that could end up crippling the Lions down the road.

As the deadline got closer and closer, I came to the conclusion in my head that the Lions were going to hold on to Tate for the rest of the season, at least. My fear then was if Quinn would be dumb enough to pay Tate what he was sure to demand if he decided to test the waters in free agency.

In fact, I even jumped on the Detroit Sports Nation Twitter account, which I rarely do and tweeted out my thoughts on the chances of Tate being traded.

Now, I know there is a .0000001% chance of this actually happening, but those players should be available when the Lions are on the clock in each round.
