Lions send Fairley to Charlotte for evaluation

Posted Aug 3, 2011

Rookie defensive tackle Nick Fairley left Monday's practice with a foot injury and was not present at Wednesday's session.

Head Coach Jim Schwartz stated after practice that the team sent him to Charlotte, North Carolina for an appointment with Dr. Anderson.

"After he left the field on Monday, we did some additional tests," said Schwartz. "We had some concerns about his foot. He was being seen late during practice, so we haven’t heard (anything). As soon as we hear his opinion and course of action, we’ll let you guys know."
