Lions Rookie OG Larry Warford Back In Practice One Day After Injury Scare
On Saturday, Detroit Lions rookie guard Larry Warford needed to be helped off the field with an apparent arm injury. Even though he returned to the sideline near the end of the session, he was gingerly holding his left arm.
After practice, Lions coach Jim Schwartz optimistically speculated the injury was minor. That was confirmed when Warford was back on the field Sunday.
"It gave everybody a little bit of scare when anybody goes down, but he bounced back from it quickly," Schwarz said. "When he came back out to the field yesterday, even though he didn't continue practice, he was feeling a lot better then."
Warford stretched with his teammates and went through individual drills -- including tossing a large medicine ball with position coach Jeremiah Washburn -- but he was held out of contact portions.
"He could have gone through everything, but we limited him to just individual today," Schwartz said. "We didn't want him going through any of the half-line stuff or team stuff. We made the decision to limit him just to err on the side of caution."
