The Detroit Lions got their season started on the right foot with a win over their division rival the Minnesota Vikings. The Arizona Cardinals lost a divisional game against the St. Louis Rams.
The biggest question for the Detroit Lions is the health of running back Reggie Bush. He led the team with 191 all-purpose yards channeling his inner Marshall Faulk. In the game however, and later during practice we believe, he suffered three injuries: a dislocated thumb, a groin injury and a hyper-extended knee.
“Reggie’s a tough guy,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said, via ESPN. “You’re a running back in the NFL, there’s going to be some Mondays where you’re not going to be feeling great. Feel a little bit better when you get the win and when you make the plays that he made. That’s what we’re looking for from him.”
The Cardinals will have more than their hands full with the offense, they need to try and keep quarterback Carson Palmer upright. He was sacked 4 times last week. With defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley the Cardinals’ offensive line will be busy.
“Obviously, they (the Rams) have a great pass rush and no, I’m not concerned about the offensive line,” first-year coach Bruce Arians said.
