Green Bay C Dietrich-Smith injured against Lions
DETROIT (AP) — Green Bay center Evan Dietrich-Smith has left its game at Detroit because of a knee injury, and he will not return.
Dietrich-Smith is the lineman who was stomped on by Detroit’s Ndamukong Suh in a Thanksgiving game two years ago. On Thursday, he appeared to have his right foot stepped on by a teammate while blocking near the end of the second quarter. After remaining down for a while, he was able to walk off under his own power.
In the third quarter, Green Bay tight end Ryan Taylor left to be evaluated for a concussion after a crunching hit by Detroit’s DeAndre Levy, who was called for unnecessary roughness.
