In the Lions 28-20 loss to the Giants, Detroit lost both QB Shaun Hill and LB Zack Follett to injuries.
Follett was injured in the fourth quarter after a helmet-to-helmet collision on kickoff return coverage. He was immobilized and taken off the field to a local hospital for further evaluation.
Head Coach Jim Schwartz after the game: “Zack Follett is getting some tests right now. We don’t have the results of those tests, but he’s got feeling in his extremities and was getting some of that back before he left the field. There’s still a lot of other things that we need to test and that we need to see with him. Let’s keep him in our prayers.”
In a statement from the team regarding Follett: “Both the MRI and CT tests performed on Zack this evening at the Hackensack Medical Center were NEGATIVE. Zack is resting comfortably and has feeling and movement in all of his extremities. He will continue to be monitored throughout the evening. We expect no further updates until Monday.”
Hill fractured his non-throwing (left) forearm and was replaced by QB Drew Stanton in the second quarter.
Hill on leaving the game: “It’s part of the game, it is frustrating. We’ll keep our spirits up and this team is going to keep battling. We’re going into the bye, we’re going to get Matthew (Stafford) back, and the other guys that have been playing hurt are going to get healthy and we’re going to try to make a run at this thing.”
