Report: Quandre Diggs suffers broken hand in loss vs. Cowboys The Detroit Lions didn’t only lose a heartbreaker on Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys Detroit Lions Hats , they also lost a few key contributors on both sides of the ball. We know that starting right guard T.J. Lang suffered a scary-looking concussion—at least the fifth of his career. We also know that safety Tavon Wilson left the game early and never came back, playing just four total snaps on Sunday.And now we know more about one of the Lions’ best defensive backs on the team, Quandre Diggs, who left the game with a hand injury. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Diggs suffered a broken hand against the Cowboys:Obviously, there’s a lot more questions than answers here. Oftentimes, a player will continue to play through a broken hand, with a “club” cast over the injury. But if it’s a serious enough fracture, the team may want Diggs to let it recover. Detroit’s bye week is just a week away, so it makes some sense to simply miss one game and reevaluate after the week of rest to get healthy for the Dolphins game in Week 7. It’s unfortunate news for Diggs Detroit Lions Hoodie , who just signed a three-year, $20.4 million extension a month ago. Though he hasn’t been at his best as Detroit’s swing nickel cornerback/strong safety, he’s one of the stronger defenders in the Lions’ secondary. Considering all of Detroit’s current issues on defense, it’s a definite blow to the team.If Diggs misses any considerable time, expect more play out of guys like third-round pick Tracy Walker—who has looked good in a limited amount of snaps—and Jamal Agnew, who has taken on a much bigger role on defense already this season.Notes: No team defended fade routes better than the Lions in 2017 Football Outsiders had a fantastic piece last week about how NFL teams defended specific receiver routes. Overall, the Detroit Lions ranked 16th in pass defense according to their DVOA metric, but there were certain routes they were better at defending than others.Most notably, according to Football Outsiders, no team was better at defending fade routes than the Lions. Detroit only allowed a completion percentage of 10 percent on fade routes Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys , and had a DVOA of -105.1%, nearly 20 percent better than any other team. That makes sense, considering the Lions have one of the best one-on-one cornerbacks in the league in Darius Slay. Slay led all NFL cornerbacks in pass breakups last year, and tallied at least one interception on a fade route: But, obviously, the Lions weren’t perfect last year. They ranked in the bottom five in both drag routes and wide receiver screens. The Great Lakes Trophy is BACK! (If you don’t know the history of the trophy, Ty Schalter has a great piece on it at The Athletic.) Want fantasy tips for this year?
