The Detroit Lions are expected to be without one of their top playmakers for at least the next couple of games after they suffered a quad injury Sunday. The Lions lost a hotly contested match to the Seattle Seahawks in overtime in Week 2.
Lions running back David Montgomery had to leave the game due to what was reported to be a thigh bruise. His absence was noticed on the Lions’ offense late in the game. And they could be without him for a while.

Montgomery led the Lions in rushing Sunday with 67 yards on 16 carries. He has 141 rushing yards through two games this season.
The Lions will now rely on rookie running back Jahmyr Gibbs to add a spark to the offense. The 2023 first-round pick was held to just 17 yards on seven carries against the Seahawks. He has a total of 59 rushing yards and 57 yards receiving this season.
