Minor Injuries Affilict Lions, Harrington

Joey Harrington, Kevin Jones, Charles Rogers, and Kenoy Kennedy among a few Lions who could miss Friday's contest at Buffalo.

ALLEN PARK - The Detroit Lions didn't escape Monday's preseason loss without a few bumps and bruises.

The team kept quarterback Joey Harrington (hamstring), running back Kevin Jones (ankle), wide receiver Charles Rogers (ankle), safety Kenoy Kennedy (hamstring) and linebacker Teddy Lehman (knee) out of practice on Wednesday.

None of the injuries are believed to be serious, but they could keep many out of Friday's game at Buffalo as precautionary steps.

Lions' head coach Steve Mariucci had yet to make any decision regarding Harrington.

"I think that if he feels well enough to play, then he will," Mariucci said. "If he doesn't feel well enough to play and he doesn't get any practice at all then we'll just wait for the Green Bay game."

Harrington admitted that the injury had been "nagging" him for the last few weeks, but wasn't likely assisted any when he took a nasty shot after a St. Louis blitz.

"They are (all) just day-to-day right now," Mariucci said, but did say that linebacker Teddy Lehman would not play.
