Dealing with a medical condition, it appears that Detroit Lions rookie offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath could be placed on injured reserve.

Earlier this week, Detroit Lions offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath had to exit practice because of an illness issue. He didn't practice the next day, and he was out for the Lions' preseason finale against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday.

It's not clear what is wrong with Culbreath, but Aaron Wilson reports he could be out for the foreseeable future because of this medical condition.

Lions rookie OT Johnny Culbreath will be sidelined indefinitely while he deals with a medical condition. Should be okay eventually.

Dave Birkett reports that Culbreath could be placed on injured reserve, which would make sense if he isn't going to be able to play because of this issue.

If Culbreath is indeed lost for the season, he will join fellow rookie Mikel Leshoure on injured reserve. Rookies Nick Fairley and Titus Young have also dealt with injuries this summer. To say the least, the 2011 draft class is not off to a good start.
