Lions Injuries Could Affect Season Opener
The Detroit Lions have a whole bunch of injuries on their squad that could hamper their chances of beating the Chicago Bears this Sunday at Ford Field in the team's season-opening game
Fourth-year wide receiver Kenny Golladay has a bad hamstring and may not play. First-round draft choice Jeff Okudah and wide receiver Danny Amendola also have hamstring injuries and might miss out.
Remember, No NFL teams played any preseason games this season. And most teams limited their offseason programs due to the coronavirus pandemic (The New Orleans Saints had no off-season program this year).
The Lions were 3-12-1 last season, and ownership has said that the team needs to play "meaningful football" in December. Otherwise, changes will be made in the offseason. Executive Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia each have two years left on their contract after this season. And veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford can opt-out of his deal after this season (he has two years left on his current deal). And the aforementioned Kenny Golladay (pictured above), Danny Amendola, and Marvin Jones are all unrestricted free agents after the season.
You can hear the Detroit Lions-Chicago Bears game on The Game 730 AM WVFN beginning with the pregame show this Sunday at 11 am.
