|Following their loss against the Falcons, the Lions take a seat in the examination room.|
I'm not sure what to make of rookie defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who was credited with the first (and only) tackle of his three-game NFL career Sunday. Fairley missed almost all of training camp, the entire preseason and the first four games of the regular season. So is he still in preseason mode? Is his surgically-repaired foot still not 100 percent? Is he adjusting to the level of play in the NFL? The bottom line is that we haven't seen a ton of impact yet from the No. 13 overall pick of the draft.
