Detroit Lions second-year defensive tackle Nick Fairley certainly doesn't need any more bad news.
We all know about his off-the-field issues, possible suspension -- so I won't re-hash all the negative. But his trial for DUI and eluding police has been delayed, according to al.com. He faces marijuana-related charges Nov. 27.
According to a report by MLive.com's Justin Rogers, Fairley limped around practice Monday, but pushed through the pain. Remember, Fairley broke his foot during 2011 camp.
But the limp isn't foot-related.
"... I know he was limping around today, but it wasn't anything to do with his foot," coach Jim Schwartz after practice, according to Rogers.
Fairley isn't alone when it comes to battling the injury bug. Calvin Johnson's left index finger is sore, Kyle Vanden Bosch is "week-to-week," according to Schwartz, while fighting a knee ailment. Jeff Backus' back is backed up, while the same is true for Corey Williams and Sammie Hill. Mikel Leshoure's hamstring is bothersome, and Steven Tulloch has knee issues.
Good news from Rogers:
The banged up receiving corps got a trio of players back in practice today with Calvin Johnson, Ryan Broyles and Patrick Edwards all returning. Safety Don Carey was also back in action after being sidelined a week with a hamstring injury
