Head Coach Jim Schwartz announced prior to Tuesday’s practice that veteran kicker Jason Hanson is scheduled to have a scope – a minor procedure – done on his non-kicking knee.
Hanson injured the knee yesterday.
Schwartz: “The MRI showed a little bit of cartilage and we’re anticipating a similar situation as last year. He had some problems last year early on in training camp. At least this time, it’s real early.”
Schwartz doesn’t want to put a timetable on the injury, but he has confirmed that the Lions aren’t going to jeopardize Hanson’s start to the season by pushing him to come back during camp.
Schwartz: “(We) really won’t know a whole until they get in there, but we don’t anticipate it being anything but minor.”
