--RB Ahman Green carried 23 times for 160 yards. "He's so fricking fast, physical and tough," Lions director of pro personnel Sheldon White said. "He's great."
--LB Na'il Diggs suffered a sprained left knee in the
second half and didn't return. Coach Mike Sherman didn't think the injury would
be a major problem. Diggs, who has been suffering from a shoulder problem, was
replaced in the dime defense by rookie Nick Barnett.
Barnett had his best game, recording 12 solo tackles and two assists. He also
made his first interception and broke up a pass playing in the dime defense for
the first time. "It was the best one so far but there will be a lot more," he
--TE Wesley Walls went out in the second half after he
aggravated his bad hamstring. Coach Mike Sherman said Walls was his biggest
injury concern coming out of the game.
--WR Donald Driver
continues to wear a neck brace after being injured in the opener against
Minnesota. He didn't play Sunday, in all probability won't play in Arizona but
has a good chance to play Sept. 29 in Chicago.
--WR Robert Ferguson impressed the coaches with his toughness by starting at split end and
playing into the second half before he aggravated the knee-ankle injury he
suffered a week ago. "'Fergy' may be one of the toughest players on this team,"
coach Mike Sherman said.
