Lions down to two healthy running backs
by Larry Hartstein |

The Lions might need to promote running back George Winn from the practice squad or sign a free agent because they currently have two healthy running backs, Reggie Bush and fullback Jed Collins, reports the Detroit Free Press. Joique Bell is recovering from a concussion, while Theo Riddick and Montell Owens are dealing with pulled hamstrings.

All three were knocked out of Sunday's win over the Jets. Lions coach Jim Caldwell has not provided any updates on the injured trio. Detroit hosts Buffalo in Week 5.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford dealing with normal bumps and bruises
by Michael Hurcomb |

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford received treatment on his throwing arm and was seen limping after Sunday's game against the Jets. However, coach Jim Caldwell said Monday those injuries were nothing out of the ordinary, according to The Detroit News.

"He's OK," Caldwell said of the quarterback. "The game is a physical game, a lot of contact and, as you well know, collisions out there. So guys are going to sometimes come out of those games pretty sore from time to time. I doubt that there's anybody in this building that has played 65 plays like he played that doesn't come out of there with some issues."

Lions coach provides no update on Joique Bell
by Michael Hurcomb |

Lions coach Jim Caldwell refused to talk Monday about the status of running back Joique Bell, who left Sunday's game against the Jets due to a concussion. Caldwell also refused to talk about Bell's status Sunday.

"I'm not going to talk about injuries in particular," he said when asked if Bell went through protocol for a brain injury, per The Detroit News. "I'll leave that up to our injury report. You can take a look at that when it does come out."
