Detroit Lions Injury Update: Drayton Florence Surgery, Bill Bentley Might Return
Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz didn’t give much away recently when asked about Drayton Florence’s injury Sunday night. He said tests and xrays were being done and a prognosis would be made later. It appears later is already happening as Florence updated fans via Twitter about his health. He said:
About to have my surgery today pls send up prays for me thanks.Ready to get back on that Feild with my teammates!!! #LionsRoar

Late Monday night, there were sources saying it was a broken right forearm on Florence. It is probably more than just a simple break however, since surgery is needed. Schwartz indicated Florence would be out for an extensive amount of time, but no specific length was given. He might get moved to the injured reserved list in order for the Lions to make roster with 53 men since Mikel Leshoure was reinstated last night.
Schwartz also updated the media on the status of Bill Bentley, who suffered a concussion in week one. He skipped week two, but will be returning to practice on Wednesday. His status for the game won’t be known until the end of the week when the coaches can review his work, consult with team doctors, and feel convinced he is fine to play.
Schwartz also said that Louis Delmas and Chris Houston had performed in extensive pregame warmups before the game Sunday night, but were not ready to return to action. They might return to practice this week, and if and when they do, it will again be evaluated again at the end of the week on whether they will be playing or not.
If Delmas and Houston are not able to return to action, there are only three healthy cornerbacks left to play: Jonte Green – a rookie, Jacob Lacey and Kevin Barnes.
