We all knew it didn’t look good when it happened, and on Tuesday the news we feared was confirmed. The Lions have lost CB Bill Bentley to a season-ending ACL tear, according to the Detroit Free Press’ Dave Birkett.
Bill Bentley has a torn ACL, will miss the rest of the year for the #Lions.

Bentley was seen after the game in the Lions locker room hobbling around on crutches after being carted off the field in Monday night’s opener vs the Giants.
The Lions are already extremely thin in the secondary, so this injury only makes matters worse. One possible solution would be to sign Champ Bailey, who worked out for Detroit last week. Immediate possibility is CB Mohammed Seisay or CB Nate Ness from the practice squad. Stay tuned to DSN for updates on the Lions injury situation.
