Camp Notes: Bryant Injury Could Be More Serious

It's been a tough week for newly acquired corner Fernando Bryant.

(ALLEN PARK) - It's been a tough week for newly acquired corner Fernando Bryant. Bryant, who laid prone on the turf for a couple of minutes after a collision with free agent Trevor Gaylor on Monday, suffered a strained ligament in his hamstring and had to be helped off the field.

Detroit limited today's workouts to just one session, holding only a special teams workout in the afternoon.

After Bryant left for treatment, Detroit lined up third-year corner Andre' Goodman, who appears to have taken the lead as the team's nickle back into the first team as a replacement for Bryant.

While the official word from the Lions is that Bryant's status is day-to-day, a source close to the team said that Bryant will only be out about two weeks and could miss the team's first two preseason games but should be back in plenty of time for the teams opener on the road against the Chicago Bears on September 12.

Lions head coach Steve Mariucci said these kinds of injuries are common in early workouts.

"We'll see. Those things take a day or so to sort out and to figure out if they're real tight."

Mariucci held running back Kevin Jones out of practice, allowing him to participate only in individual drills. Linebacker Boss Bailey and guard Damien Woody did not practice. Both are nursing minor knee injuries.
