Lions' Darius Slay, Mike Daniels hurt vs. Eagles; extent of injuries unknown
Philadelphia — The Detroit Lions got two starters back for Sunday's game against the Eagles when linebacker Jarrad Davis made his season debut and offensive tackle Taylor Decker returned from a one-week absence caused by a back injury. But that good news was offset by injuries suffered by defensive tackle Mike Daniels and cornerback Darius Slay during Sunday's 27-24 victory.
Daniels exited the game in the first half, heading to the locker room with a foot injury. He was initially listed as questionable to return, but was ruled out shortly after.
Following the the game, Daniels was spotted with crutches, and his right foot in a boot. It's important to note that he missed six games last season with a left foot injury.
The NFL Network reported that Daniels didn't suffer any broken bones in the foot.
As for Slay, he clutched his hamstring after reaching down on the run while attempting to intercept and overthrown pass early in the third quarter. The two-time Pro Bowler was replaced in the lineup by Mike Ford.
Slay did not return.
Davis suffered a brief scare when a player fell on his injured ankle, but he returned to the game after being evaluated by the medical staff on the sideline.
Lions coach Matt Patricia didn't have any immediate update on Slay or Daniels after the game.
"I didn't get a chance to catch them," Patricia said during his post-game press conference. "I know the doctors were talking to those guys, so I did not get a chance to talk to them."
