Lions Training Camp: Jason Fox Sees Specialist; Other Injury News

Just like Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley did a week ago, offensive tackle Jason Fox visited Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina on Monday. Fox hurt his foot during practice on Saturday morning and was using a walking boot and crutches. It's not clear how severe the injury is since Jim Schwartz declined to get into the specifics, but he did say that what's wrong with Fox's foot is different than the issue Fairley had. The Lions are supposed to release more information at some point.

In other injury news, offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus and wide receiver Titus Young returned to practice on Monday. Both were limited, and Young had to ice his hamstring after going through the individual drills, but the fact that they were able to practice at all is a good sign.

Safety Louis Delmas, who had been out after having minor finger surgery, also returned to practice. Running back Maurice Morris, who broke his hand, hopes to join Delmas and his other teammates on the practice field soon.

Three players who won't be on the Lions practice field anytime soon are defensive end Greg Banks, linebacker Daunte Akra and cornerback Jamal Robinson. They were released on Monday as the Lions cleared some space on the roster to sign defensive end Keyunta Dawson and defensive tackle Montavious Stanley. At this time it's not clear who is the third player being added to the roster.

UPDATE: The third player that is joining the team is linebacker Cody Brown, who was claimed off waivers from the Jets.
