Tyrell Crosby Rips Lions' Handling of Injuries: I Was Treated Like 'Piece of Meat'

Free-agent offensive tackle Tyrell Crosby didn't look back on his time with the Detroit Lions fondly while reflecting on his three-year run there.

The Lions cut Crosby ahead of the 2021 NFL season. Last December, he underwent surgery for an injury that the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett reported as being "misdiagnosed" during training camp.

In an interview Sunday with Birkett (via Pride of Detroit's Jeremy Reisman), Crosby alleged the Lions didn't treat his complaints about back pain seriously. He added it was part of a wider issue within the franchise.
