ESPN: Blindside protection for Stafford is Lions' biggest worry
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will need eyes in the back of his head unless the team quickly addresses the dire situation on its offensive line, says ESPN's Michael Rothstein, who lists each NFL squad's biggest question marks heading into training camp.
The full story is here. The Lions players report for camp Saturday. The first practice is Sunday.
The loss of offensive tackle Taylor Decker to shoulder surgery leaves a gaping hole in blindside protection, Rothstein writes.
Two candidates to fill Decker’s role, Cyrus Kouandjio (non-football injury list) and Corey Robinson (physically unable to perform list) will start camp on the sidelines.
Rothstein writes, “… Detroit has to figure out some sort of solution here or this could be a rough start to the 2017 season.”
