Lions' Travis Swanson 'ok' after hand injury scare

Not every NFL team can accept losing, which is exactly why Detroit Lions' center Travis Swanson got injured on Sunday afternoon.

Rather than a play during a game, Swanson's right hand was hurt in a scrum during its conclusion as Detroit took a knee. He had x-rays after the game, and said he was alright during a usual work day.

Monday afternoon, Jim Caldwell didn't elaborate, naturally, telling reporters to "check the report" as it relates to Swanson's ailment, while also deferring when he asked about the push back from the Los Angeles Rams, noting he couldn't control how other teams play.

Matthew Stafford noted after Sunday's game that he "wasn't fired up" about how the Rams played out the final sequence of the game, which included pushing and shoving as the Lions were running out the clock.

The good news for the Lions? The injury doesn't seem to be terribly severe for Swanson, who's had a great bounce back season thus far for Detroit.
