Update: Leftwich might not miss any action despite spraining the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee, coach Jack Del Rio told the Associated Press. Sports orthopedist James Andrews of Birmingham, Ala., examined Leftwich on Tuesday and determined the quarterback will not need surgery.
Recommendation: Leftwich has been told to rest the injury. Some players with the same injury have required four to six weeks of rest, but Del Rio said that rest during this week's bye might be enough. "We'll re-evaluate Monday and have a better sense of when Byron will be able to join us. We have not ruled out the Detroit Lions here at home," Del Rio said Tuesday. More word on Leftwich's status when we get it, but the injury might not be as serious as initially feared.
