Carey (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game against the Bears. Carey will return from a two-game absence, but is slated for a reserve role as Glover Quin's backup at free safety.
Carey (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints. Carey practiced in limited fashion throughout the week, but will ultimately be unable to play Sunday. Glover Quin will get the start at free safety per usual.
Carey (hamstring) is inactive for Thursday's game versus the Vikings. Limited in practice on this short week, Carey may miss just one game as a result of the hamstring injury suffered this past Sunday. No matter, the Lions will be without a key member of the special teams unit.
Carey injured his hamstring during Sunday's win over the Jaguars, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media Group reports. Carey's absence wouldn't have much of an impact on the Lions' defense, but they'll miss him on special teams if he's forced to miss an extended period of time.
Carey signed a one-year contract extension with the Lions on Wednesday, the Detroit Free Press reports. Detroit has placed an emphasis on special teams under general manager Bob Quinn, and this deal is yet another instance of such. Carey, who likely makes his biggest impact on punt coverage, is among the best gunners in the league and his seven special teams tackles leads the team. He's now set to remain a Lion through the 2017 campaign.
