Zack Follett Out Of Hospital, Reportedly Suffered 'Stinger'

Lions linebacker Zack Follett was released from the hospital today and given the OK to travel back to Detroit. Jim Schwartz had this to say about the injury:

"He’s doing a lot better, and his tests all came back very, very encouraging," Lions coach Jim Schwartz said at his news conference today. "We look forward to a quick recovery and seeing him back on the field some time." 

It's unclear when exactly Follett will be able to return. Schwartz wouldn't lay out a timetable or anything, although he did say that this wasn't related to a concussion. Adam Schefter reported that the injury was a "stinger," which is a lot less severe than what could have happened.
