Prince Amukamara ALSO Out Indefinitely With Foot Injury

A great many Lions fans were hell bent on drafting a CB this year. While we weren't going to be able to pick up the "Sure thing" lock-down CB Patrick Peterson from LSU, many still believed that there was much talent to be had at the CB position regardless, and the #2 guy on many charts was Amukamara.

With news that our 1st round pick Nick Fairley would be out for an extended period with a foot issue of his own, many were complaining still about not taking a CB. Today we found out that Prince Amukamara himself is basically going to be our for several weeks as well, so in the end it appears that every road would have lead to failure with out 1st round draft pick this year. Hopefully neither are found needing to do motorhome repair anytime soon with injury plagued careers.
