Lions cornerback Nevin Lawson said he plans to make a full recovery by the start of the season. Lawson suffered a severely dislocated foot. He isn't sure if he'll participate in the Lions' OTAs, but he said he has no limitations on his activities, per MLive. Lawson is taking his recovery slow, but he should be back by the opener.
Lions cornerbacks Bill Bentley and Nevin Lawson are both making progress from their season-ending surgeries last September. Bentley suffered an ACL injury and Lawson suffered a toe injury. Coach Jim Caldwell said that both players are active, working and making progress, per the Oakland Press.
The Lions put cornerback Nevin Lawson (dislocated toes) on injured reserve, signed cornerback Danny Gorrer and promoted linebacker Julian Stanford from the practice squad.
Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Monday cornerback Nevin Lawson dislocated his toes Sunday against the Panthers and he "does not anticipate" Lawson returning this season.
Lions coach Jim Caldwell told reporters Friday rookie defensive back Nevin Lawson will be the team's primary nickel corner for Week 2 against the Panthers. The spot in the secondary came open when Bill Bentley suffered an ACL injury that ended his season in Week 1. Lawson had one tackle in his NFL debut in Week 1. Lawson was a 4th round pick out of Utah State in this year's draft.
