Mathis (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Mathis missed the previous three games due to concussion symptoms, so it's not too surprising to see him land on IR. The 35-year-old could found his way onto the field next year, but given his age and injury history it wouldn't be surprising to see him retire at the end of the season.
Mathis (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Green Bay, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. This isn't much of a loss for the Lions, as Mathis hasn't been playing at the same level he did last season. Nevin Lawson will likely get another start across from Darius Slay.
Mathis (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. As a result, Nevin Lawson will start at cornerback for the Lions on Sunday in place of Mathis.
