ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- A fractured shoulder blade will keep Detroit Lions return specialist Eddie Drummond out for the remainder of the season.
 

A CT scan showed a minor break, coach Steve Mariucci said Friday.

The team had not decided whether to place Drummond on injured reserve.

"He's going to be out," Mariucci said. "The sad part is that this probably keeps him off the Pro Bowl ballot."

Drummond, who has scored on four punt and kickoff returns this season, was hurt on the opening kickoff of the second half of Detroit's 41-9 Thanksgiving Day loss to Indianapolis.

He will miss out on a chance to be the first NFL player with five scores off punt or kickoff returns in a season.

That's a shame.


He was this season's Dante Hall and had a good shot at that record. There are only a handful of exciting returners in the league right now, Drummond definitely being one.

Tough break for the Lions. Even thought they still have a long way to go, Mariucci seems to have done a decent job in heading this perennial door mat franchise in the right direction.

Agreed, Mariucci has done a fine job bringing in some good players and has done a decent job considering all of the injuries.

They still hold a decent chance of making the playoffs.

I wonder wha the chances of some division ending up with all of its teams 8-8? With the curse/blessing of parity it looks closer to reality than ever.
