The Detroit Lions could be without veteran kicker Jason Hanson on Sunday in Chicago.
Hanson is dealing with an injured left knee, and the team had two kickers in for a tryout on Wednesday – Rhys Lloyd and Shayne Graham. Hanson did not practice and it remains to be seen if the team will sign a free agent, according to Philip Zaroo of MLive.com.
Lloyd has been considered a kickoff specialist in the past, and he has played for special teams coordinator Danny Crossman in Carolina previously. The Lions could wait until Friday or Saturday to make a move, depending on how Hanson comes along.
