    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) isn't certain to return this season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Fairley is dealing with a sprained knee, but there is hope that he can return in 4-to-5 weeks. Fairley had to be helped off the field in Week 8, and he was placed on a cart and taken to the locker room. He had 14 tackles and a sack through eight games.

    Huddle Up: His 14 tackles and 1 sack don't necessarily reflect it, but Fairley has started all 8 games and been a vital part of an effective DT rotation for one of the league's best defenses. His loss will likely be felt beyond IDP leagues.

    Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) injured his medial collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament in Week 8, according to a source. The team hopes he will be able to return in four or five weeks.

    Huddle Up: Fairley is a member of the DT rotation on one of the league's top defenses so we'll have to see if there's any kind of dropoff in the coming weeks. At least the Lions have the upcoming bye week to get a Plan B in place.

    Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley was sentenced to a 6-month suspended sentence and one year of probation Thursday, July 31, for a 2012 driving under the influence of alcohol arrest. It is unclear whether he will face discipline from the NFL. Fairley intends to appeal the decision.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately, this hasn't been the only off-field issue for Fairley, so some sort of league punishment could be forthcoming for the DT, who is coming off a career-high 6 sacks and 35 total tackles in 2013 season and is entering a contract year.
