Jacob Lacey injury: Lions CB may be out for season

Norm Hall

Detroit Lions cornerback Jacob Lacey underwent tests on his knee Monday and could be out for the season.

Detroit Lions cornerback Jacob Lacey underwent tests on his injured left knee Monday, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that while there's no ligament damage, the injury "could be significant." Lions head coach Jim Schwartz also said that he could miss the rest of the season.

Lacey injured his knee on the opening drive of the Lions' ugly 38-10 defeat at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals. The cornerback hurt himself trying to tackle Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald and did not return to the game. Lacey has had issues with injuries all season: He has missed three full games, but has also been forced to leave other contests.

For the season, Lacey has 36 tackles, four passes defended and one interception. He is a free agent after this season, and it remains to be seen if this injury will have any effect on whether the Lions re-sign him or not.

Detroit hosts the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16.
