We're Black and Blue All Over:

Wednesday afternoon, we noted the Detroit Lions had claimed cornerback Brandon McDonald off waivers but hadn't yet announced a corresponding move to open a roster spot. That mystery is now solved. Linebacker Zack Follett, the self-proclaimed "Pain Train" who rose to starting status during offseason workouts, was placed on injured reserve because of a scary neck injury suffered Oct. 17 against the New York Giants.

The injury is not believed to be career-threatening, but Follett won't play again this season. He is the seventh player the Lions have placed on injured reserve.
