When we told you Tuesday that Lions rookie DT Nick Fairley wasn’t practicing -- and was, in fact, in a walking boot -- it might have caught you off guard.

Fairley said the ankle injury wasn’t a big deal and that he was doing whatever it took to get back as soon as possible (though he also let on he didn’t know exactly when that would be).

Well, we have a better idea today. As Lions Rapid Reporter John Kreger writes, Fairley underwent surgery today in Charlotte. Although an exact diagnosis of Fairley’s injury was not released, he’s expected to miss a “significant portion” of training camp while he rehabs.

The Lions decided to send Fairley to Charlotte after observing him Tuesday. Apparently, the team was concerned because the injury was more serious than previously believed.

Do you honestly believe he was hurt?  Seriously?  A bruised ego, maybe.  But physically?  I've played on a sprained knee before.  If this was the regular season, sure.  Take a seat.  But during the playoffs?  It would take a lot more than a sprained knee to keep my ass off the field.  The funny thing is the Bears probably would have won that game had they played Hanie from the gitgo. 
The man couldn't throw with an injured knee on his planting leg. Take a seat with your 3 -- 4 place team and watch the big boys play!! YOU don't think he was injured?? REALLY?? Dude, you really need to lay off of whatever ditchweed you've been abusing.

Haha.  Even Phillip Rivers played with a torn ACL in the AFC Championship Game in 2008.  Did it ruin his career?  It seems to me that he has only gotten better since then.

Two games I would be shocked to see Detroit lose.
Just as shocked as I will be should Detroit win 8 games!

Yardog, at least we don't have a QB who will puss out in the middle of the biggest game of his life! 
Because he was injured he pussed out?? Dude, for real..............what are you smoking??
