Lions' Steve Longa: Predictably drops to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions placed Longa (knee) on injured reserve Monday, he reports.

After tearing his ACL during Friday's preseason loss to the Giants, Longa was deemed out for the season. The third-year pro was a special teams asset, so his absence won't affect the Lions' defensive dynamic. Keep an eye out for Detroit to bring in an outside linebacker in free agency.

Lions' Steve Longa: Torn ACL feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Longa (knee) is believed to have suffered a torn ACL, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. He will undergo an MRI to confirm the results of the initial tests.

Longa didn't see a ton of time on defense last season for the Lions, but he was a decent depth piece and a special teams contributor for the club. Should the MRI confirm the torn ACL, the Lions could look to add to the position from the free agent pool.

Lions' Steve Longa: Spotted on crutches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Longa (knee) was spotted on crutches following Friday's preseason loss to the Giants, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

Longa, who left Friday's contest during the third quarter, could be dealing with a potentially serious knee injury after all. If he's he forced to miss a significant amount of time, Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Darnell Sankey could see additional reps at outside linebacker behind Devon Kennard and Christian Jones.

Lions' Steve Longa: Suffers potential knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Longa exited Friday's preseason tilt against the Giants after suffering an apparent knee injury, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.

Longa's knee appeared to have buckled after being juked by Giants quarterback Kyle Lauletta, as the former headed straight to the locker room for medical attention. The severity of the injury is unclear at this point, but the non-contact situation isn't a great sign.
