Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Monday he does not anticipate rookie Nevin Lawson to return this season after he suffered dislocated toes in his left foot during the Lions' 24-7 loss to Carolina on Sunday. Lawson was immediately taken to Mercy Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, following the injury and was in surgery before the Lions game concluded Sunday.
The Lions lost to the Carolina Panthers, 24-7, at Bank of America Stadium with Stafford making inaccurate and often rushed passes, finishing 27 of 48 for 291, one touchdown and an ugly fourth-quarter interception. With the Lions down 13-7 early in the final quarter and the ball at their 48, Stafford underthrew a deep pass into double coverage to Calvin Johnson on the first play of the drive.
Charlotte, N.C. -- After looking sensational in Week 1, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford reverted to his old, costly ways in Week 2. The Lions lost to the Carolina Panthers, 24-7, at Bank of America Stadium with Stafford making inaccurate and often rushed passes, finishing 27 of 48 for 291, one touchdown and an ugly fourth-quarter interception.
The Detroit Lions are down another cornerback. Rookie Nevin Lawson left Sunday's game between the Lions and Carolina Panthers in the third quarter with a foot injury and his return is doubtful.

Ness had been on the practice squad, but he was called up amid injury problems within the secondary. Cornerback Bill Bentley went on injured reserve with a knee injury, and safety James Ihedigbo's status for Sunday's game at Carolina is uncertain.

When starting cornerback Bill Bentley tore his ACL early in the game, Lawson was thrown immediately into the fire against Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and the Giants, and he'll remain there this Sunday against Cam Newton and the Panthers. "We weren't expecting Nevin to play that much, obviously, but every player on our roster knows that they are one play away from being on the field," defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said.
No need to celebrate too long as the Panthers have a tough foe on Sunday in the home opener against the Detroit Lions. In 2013, the Lions finished 7-9.

With cornerback Bill Bentley on injured reserve with a torn ACL , the Detroit Lions are expected to sign a defensive back this week to bolster their depth in the secondary. On Wednesday, however, no moves involving cornerbacks were made.
The Detroit Lions have re-signed Garrett Reynolds after learning that offensive tackle Corey Hilliard is out for the season. The Detroit Lions dealt with numerous injuries at right tackle last year.
Reynolds spent training camp with the Lions and played both tackle and guard. He started 23 of 42 games over five seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, who selected him in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
