Unfortunately, it sounds like the Detroit Lions will be without LT Taylor Decker this coming Sunday as he is dealing with an injured hand that may require surgery.
So, how will the Lions elect to replace Decker?
Well, according to rookie OT Penei Sewell, who has been playing RT throughout training camp, he has been primarily taking reps at LT since Decker’s injury on Wednesday. He added that he is definitely the right tackle when Decker returns from injury.
Nation, if the Lions do move Sewell to LT, would that be the right decision?
Penei Sewell said he’s been primarily taking reps on the left since Taylor Decker’s injury Wednesday.

Sewell said he is “definitely” the right tackle whenever Decker returns.
