The article presents information on the recent developments related to the football team Detroit Lions. The Lions are running out of linebackers. Now that football players Boss Bailey and Earl Holmes are on injured reserve, the team's top four nickel linebackers are out for the season. Football player Donte' Curry has been banged up for the past few weeks, leaving football player LaVar Woods as the team's only healthy middle linebacker. Football player Wall Rainer, Bailey's replacement, is good against the run but doesn't have Bailey's speed and isn't effective in pass coverage.
