At this point, it does not even seem possible for the Detroit Lions to lose another key player but according to head coach Dan Campbell, that is exactly what could happen.
On Wednesday, Campbell spoke to reporters and he said it’s possible that LT Taylor Decker is shut down for the remainder of the 2021 season as he continues to recover from his hand injury.
“There’s a chance,” Campbell said about the possibility of Decker being shut down for the season.
When it rains, it pours.
Dan Campbell says “there’s a chance” the Lions could shut Taylor Decker down for the season at the end of this three-week IR-return window. Still trying to figure out how comfortable Decker is using his surgically repaired finger.
