Lions First-Round Pick Fairley in a Walking Boot a Day After Injury

Lions first-round pick Nick Fairley was in a walking boot a day after injuring his left foot in a pass-rush drill, but the rookie defensive tackle wasn’t eager to talk about how badly he’s hurt.

“It’s not (a big setback) at all,” Fairley said as he walked past reporters after practice today. “I’m doing whatever I can do to get ready to get back as soon as I can.”

And when will that be? “Really don’t know yet,” Fairley said.

“Nick sort of tweaked his foot during pass-rush, or individual (drills), one of those things,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “They sent him in to get it X-rayed, just to make sure there was nothing, no broken bone in there, because he wanted to keep on practicing. So we sent him in, and that was negative.
