It almost isn't fair.
In fact, it isn't. At least not to Lions' head coach Marty Mornhinweg, nor the rest of the Detroit Lions ball club. And especially not to Lions' wide receiver Germane Crowell.
On the Lions' second possession of the 4th quarter, quarterback Charlie Batch heaved a pass into the endzone for Crowell, who was double-covered. Crowell was slow to get up, and after a replay displayed a nasty twist of Crowell's left knee, the former University of Virginia standout was carted off the field.
LionsFans.com contributing editor, Paul Wezner, was told by Lions' linebacker Chris Claiborne following the contest that it maybe a tear in Crowell's patella tendon. If that is the case, as reports are leaning towards, Crowell will likely miss the remainder of the regular season.
Crowell's injury comes a week after veteran wide receiver Herman Moore was forced to miss the regular season with a slight tear in his hamstring.
The Lions, struggling mightily at 0-5, are already without starting middle linebacker Stephen Boyd (back), who will likely miss the remainder of the season, and starting free safety Kurt Schulz (back) who won't be able to return until the middle of the season.
