Lions News: Don Carey Injury Update, Jim Caldwell Talks Impact Of His Return

In this Lions news and rumors update, the Detroit Lions have been without safety/special-teams standout Don Carey for the first two games of the 2014 season due to a hamstring injury.

However, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports that Carey "could be returning soon," as he is almost fully on the mend.

Carey practiced with the team on Wednesday and indicates that he is feeling ready to go.

"Now that I'm playing, I feel great," Carey said Thursday. "Anything that I can do to help the team win, I'm willing to do."

Head coach Jim Caldwell is excited to plug Carey in to the team's rebuilt secondary as a nickel cornerback, but is also looking forward to his impact on special teams.

"If he's able to go for us, he will give us some help in both areas, both as an experienced safety and also in special teams," Caldwell stated, via Beard's article on Thursday. "He's a guy who has a good sense of defensive football. He helps you just in terms of balancing experience overall and he's versatile; he can play a number of different spots."
