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.
