Decker on road to recovery after shoulder surgery

Detroit’s retooled offensive line has received its first bit of bad news for the 2017 season.

Starting left tackle Taylor Decker suffered a shoulder injury during OTA practices last week and underwent surgery on Monday.

Lions head coach Jim Caldwell broke the news to the media on Tuesday and didn’t have a timetable for Decker’s return.

“It got repaired and we’ll see how he progresses along,” Caldwell said. “The doctors will certainly give us updates as he goes … he’s on the road to recovery.”

Caldwell said he’d give an updated timetable for Decker’s return at the start of training camp in late July.
