Report: Lions OL Corey Hilliard expected to miss rest of season

Wednesday September 10th, 2014

Detroit Lions offensive lineman Corey Hilliard is likely to miss the rest of the season after suffering a Lisfranc injury and torn ligaments in his right foot in Monday night's win over the Giants, according to a report from the Detroit Free Press.

Hilliard said he suffered the injury in the third quarter but "fed off adrenaline" to keep playing, according to the team's Twitter account. He also said he stayed in the game because the Lions did not have another tackle, according to Tim Twentyman, the beat writer for the team's official website. Head coach Jim Caldwell said the team was preparing to insert tight end Brandon Pettigrew at tackle.

Hilliard was filling in at right tackle for starter LaAdrian Waddle, who left the game with a calf injury. On Wednesday, the Lions announced they had signed offensive lineman Garrett Reynolds.
