The Detroit Lions may have picked up a huge win over the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday but it sounds like they also suffered a huge loss.
According to reports, Lions special teams coordinator Joe Marciano has indicated that Jamal Agnew has suffered a long-term knee injury. The fear is that Agnew tore his ACL.

With Agnew expected to miss extended time, Ameer Abdullah seems like the most logical choice to handle the kick return duties while either Golden Tate, TJ Jones, or Brandon Powell will probably handle punt returns. Though it is interesting to note that Kerryon Johnson did return punts at Auburn.
Detroit Lions game-by-game predictions for the remainder of season
Well, our Detroit Lions are doing it to us again! After beating the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, the Lions are now 2-3 and in striking distance in the NFC North. In fact, there are just four teams in the entire NFC that have more wins than Detroit. (Yes, we know there are 10 teams actually ahead of the Lions in the NFC standings)
Anyways, as fans, we now have a little bit of hope. The Lions have proven they can beat solid teams and if they can just get their crap together, they could make a run at the NFL Playoffs. The question is, will they get their crap together or will they break our hearts yet again?
Let’s take a look at my game-by-game predictions for the remainder of the season.
WEEK 6 – BYE WEEK
(W) WEEK 7 – @ Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins may be 3-2, but they are not a good football team. Even though this game is on the road, the Lions will be well-rested and will find a way to win to move to 3-3 on the season.
Lions 26 Dolphins 23
