The preseason has begun, which means that the significant injuries also will begin.
Lions receiver Jermaine Kearse has been carted off with a lower leg injury, early in the first quarter of the game between New England and Detroit.
A defensive player fell into Kearse from behind while he was blocking on a running play.
The 29-year-old Kearse, who won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks, signed with the Lions after spending the last two years with the Jets. He was having a solid training camp in his first season in Detroit.
