Lions Training Camp: Jason Fox Doesn't Need Surgery

There has seemingly been nothing but bad news for the Detroit Lions when it comes to injuries. A number of starters are currently dealing with injuries, and Mikel Leshoure is even out for the year thanks to an injury.

Finally on Tuesday the Lions did get some good news. Offensive tackle Jason Fox, who visited the same specialist who operated on Nick Fairley, found out that he won't need surgery. In fact, he doesn't have a fracture in his injured foot, and it appears that he could return in the next couple of weeks.

"No surgery is required on his foot," he said. "They’re going to immobilize him in a cast for a week and then it’ll probably be another week in a boot and then we’ll just see after that how he responds."

More good news came in the form of seeing wide receiver Titus Young and offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus on the practice field. Both were still limited, but the fact that they have returned at all is a good sign going forward.
