Lions CBs Lawson, Wilson injured vs. Packers
Green Bay, Wis. — The Lions likely will be seeking help at cornerback this week after Nevin Lawson and Josh Wilson suffered injuries in Sunday's win over the Packers.
Lawson, the team's No. 2 outside cornerback, with Rashean Mathis on injured reserve, was going through the NFL's concussion protocol after the game, so he couldn't speak with reporters. It's unclear if he suffered a concussion, but he exited the game late in the fourth quarter to undergo testing for a brain injury.
Meanwhile, Wilson left the game shortly thereafter and needed the assistance of two trainers as he was unable to put weight on his right leg. He was on crutches in the locker room after the game and will undergo an MRI for further testing.
Coach Jim Caldwell declined to provide an update on either player's injury.
Wilson said he didn't think it was a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, but declined to provide details. Wilson had dealt with a myriad of injuries this season, including a neck injury and a concussion.
"You get banged up; it's football," he said. "You're going to get banged up and just keep going and rolling. They can't keep me down."
