Lions RB Kevin Smith leaves on cart
By Kevin Seifert
DETROIT -- Add one more prominent name to the injury list in this Thanksgiving Feast.
Detroit Lions running back Kevin Smith just left the bench on a cart after suffering a right leg injury early in the second quarter at Ford Field. Smith had been the Lions' primary source of offense to that point, carrying seven times for 36 yards and catching three passes for another 21 yards. Maurice Morris is now serving as the Lions' tailback.
Meanwhile, Lions safety Louis Delmas is standing on the sideline with a helmet on as if he wants to return to the game. Several members of the Lions' medical staff are standing next to him.
