|Darius Slay taking demotion in stride |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/13) Lions rookie Darius Slay is taking his demotion from starter in stride, according to the Detroit Free Press. Slay has gone from starting the first two games to receiving no playing time on defense Week 3 at Washington.
"I took it serious, but it’s a team effort here," he said. "And I knew I was going to end up with a potential look; my name could be called at any time, so I had to game-plan seriously just as always, like I was starting. So it wasn’t a big issue."
Slay has been replaced in the starting lineup by Rashean Mathis, but coach Jim Schwartz continues to believe Slay has a bright future in the NFL.
"They tell me the same thing," Slay said. "It’s a learning process. It’s just like I learned with the zone concepts. They say I’m a great man player, but I’ve got to learn the concepts of how to match players better and all that. So right now I’m just learning, watching ’Shean and getting better."
|The Lions selected Mississippi State cornerback Darius Slay in the second round of the NFL draft. Slay had five interceptions last season and returned one of them for a touchdown. He reportedly has a torn meniscus that won't require surgery. The 6-foot, 192-pound Slay has a chance to start opposite veteran cornerback Chris Houston. The health of his knee will play a major role as will his work in training camp this summer. He probably won't put up enough stats to warrant use in standard seasonal leagues. Think of him with a late pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts. (Updated 5/15/13) |
