Report: Lions DL Kerry Hyder Will Miss Season With Torn Achilles
Detroit Lions defensive lineman Kerry Hyder will miss miss all of the 2017 with a torn Achilles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Rapoport adds that Hyder will have surgery this week to begin his rehab early so he is ready for the start of training camp next year.
Hyder was carted off the field in the first quarter of Sunday's preseason opener and was unable to put any weight on his left leg at the time, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Last season Hyder led the Lions with eight sacks. He also had 36 tackles and a fumble recovery.
He appeared in all 16 games in 2016 after playing one game in 2015 after he was signed off the practice squad.
