Report: Lions blew protocol Sunday in case of LaAdrian Waddle
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Lions allowed right tackle LaAdrian Waddle to return to the game Sunday against New Orleans after slamming his head to the turf on the extra point that secured the victory, the Detroit Free Press has reported.

Jim Caldwell admitted that Thursday despite claiming that he and general manager Martin Mayhew followed NFL concussion protocol "to the letter."

Waddle stayed in the game for the kneel-down play that ran the final seconds off the clock. "We knew exactly when it occurred and what happened within the context of it," Caldwell said. "It was the last play of the game for him. It was actually on a field goal, the PAT at the end. It's the last play of the game for him."

Protocol requires that a player must be removed if a brain injury is suspected. Yet Waddle was indeed in the game thereafter. Why was he allowed to return to the field?

"Well, in terms of they knew exactly what happened to him in terms of he banged his head on the ground after where he gets up," Caldwell said. "It wasn't to the point where they thought he was concussed at the time. The final snap of the game, we knew it was only one snap, then the doctors reviewed him, took a look at him, it wasn't one of those situations where he felt he had to go in the locker room right away. But they did know he banged it when he came off, and that he was good."

Waddle did not participate in Wednesday practice.

Lions WR Calvin Johnson could be game-time decision Week 8
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said wide receiver Calvin Johnson felt good Thursday after practicing in a limited capacity Wednesday, according to the team's official website. Caldwell said Johnson would do more at practice Thursday and he did just that.

At Thursday's portion of practice open to the media, Johnson was seen cutting and running routes. Johnson was running routes with his helmet on Thursday.

The veteran wide receiver is trying to make his way back into the lineup Week 8 at Atlanta after missing the last two games due to an ankle injury. Johnson said he could be a game-time decision Sunday, per ESPN.

"You want to push it. I want to push it, but we're trying to be smart about it," Johnson said. "Trying to take advice from the training staff that they are giving me and go with that."

Johnson has totaled just three catches for 19 yards in his last two games and hasn't scored in his last four games.
