Stefan Logan leaves on crutches with ankle injury

As if the Lions didn’t have enough problems keeping running backs on the field, they may have lost another option last night.

Returner Stefan Logan, who has taken on a bigger role in the backfield this year without Jahvid Best out and Mikel Leshoure only beginning to come back, injured his right ankle in the win at Baltimore.

Logan needed crutches to get to the locker room, but coach Jim Schwartz said X-rays came back negative.

“We’ll see,” Schwartz said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “It didn’t look great on film according to our doctors, but Logan’s a pretty tough guy. We’ll just see how that comes out.”

Logan had a down year as a returner last year, but remains a valuable part, especially considering how thin the Lions have become at the position.

  1. I’m sure this won’t derail the LION TRAIN!!

    The secondary and fairley lining up in the neutral zone will do that already.

  2. I wanted to like Logan when he was Steeler, but a fact’s a fact. If you’re in the position where you have to rely on this guy for anything to begin with, you’ve got bigger problems than him being injured. I’m surprised the Lions have kept him around this long.

  3. He was one of the best returners in the league 2 years ago but after last years performance and the fact kick returners have been made obsolete by the NFL I would have been surprised if he made the team this year.

  4. Right now the Lions special team play is not very good. I’m not sure Logan is the answer to their kick return game anyway and it’s going to be interesting to see who steps up and siezes the opportunity if he’s out for any length of time.
