Hand (knee) was an active participant in minicamp, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Hand injured the MCL in one of his knees in Week 14 of last season and ultimately missed the final three games of the season on injured reserve. He didn't require surgery to recover, but it's not clear how far his rehab may have extended into OTAs. In any case, Hand seems set to play starting role in 2018 within a defensive front that includes a pair of game-changing players in Damon Harrison (contract dispute) and Trey Flowers (shoulder), who each will command significant attention from opposing offenses. In 13 games as a rookie in 2018, Hand registered 27 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles.
Hand (knee) will not require surgery to recover from his MCL injury, Dave Brikett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Hand was placed on season-ending injured reserve following a Week 14 win against the Cardinals due to an MCL injury, and he will reportedly recover in full without undergoing surgery. The rookie fourth-round pick logged 27 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles through 13 games while healthy, and he stood out as one of the best players on Detroit's defense. It does not appear that Hand is in significant danger of missing offseason workouts due to his injury.
Hand (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. The exact nature of Hand's knee injury remains a bit unclear, though he was carted off the field during Week 14's tilt against the Cardinals, and the issue is severe enough to keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season. The 2018 fourth rounder out of Alabama amassed 27 tackles (22 solo), three sacks and two forced fumbles in 13 games.
Hand (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bills, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Hand was carted off the field in the first quarter of Week 14's game versus the Cardinals and didn't return. The timeline for his return isn't clear. Hand sat out of every practice this week and will need to get on the field in some fashion in order to play Week 16 versus the Vikings.
Hand (nee) will not return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Such is often the outcome when one is carted off the field. Ricky Jean Francois will continue handling duties at defensive tackle.
