REPORT: Detroit Lions’ HC Matt Patricia Injury Update

When the Detroit Lions take the field on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, they will be doing so under the leadership of second-year head coach Matt Patricia.

Patricia will be looking to turn the Lions around after a disastrous 2018 campaign in which the team finished 6-10, which landed them in last place in the NFC North.

During the offseason, Patricia had Achilles surgery and he has spent the preseason in a walking boot while riding around on his four-wheeler. As far as in-game coaching, Patricia has been forced to perform his duties from behind the Lions’ bench to prevent further injury.

Patricia had hoped to be ready to go by Week 1 of the regular season but according to a report from Ian Rapoport, the Lions head coach “tentatively plans to be safe from behind the bench today.”

As Rapoport notes, the preseason was good preparation for communication purposes.

What do you think, Nation? Is there a disadvantage for Patricia coaching from behind the Lions’ bench?
