Even though Lions say RB Ameer Abdullah has a "foot" injury, he was spotted postgame in a walking boot with a noticeable limp.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 19, 2016
Abdullah was in a boot after the game and was seen limping. He could miss a week or two with the injury, but fantasy owners should be thankful that Abdullah didn't suffer a break, which could have put him out for much longer.
