Following Tuesday’s practice, Head Coach Jim Schwartz announced that the team received good news after T Jason Fox‘s foot evaluation in North Carolina.
“No surgery is required on his foot,” he said. “They’re going to immobilize him in a cast for a week and then it’ll probably be another week in a boot and then we’ll just see after that how he responds.”
The coaching staff intends to get Fox back on the field as soon as he’s physically capable.
Considering the injuries to both starting tackles – Jeff Backus (pectoral) and Gosder Cherilus (knee) – the potential long-term loss of Fox was tough to swallow. Fox filled in during Detroit’s win over Green Bay last season when the Lions had injury trouble along the offensive line.
