Lions LB Ernie Sims unlikely to play

Detroit News - [Full Article]

Linebacker Ernie Sims was held out of practice Wednesday with a right hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's loss in Seattle. Lions coach Jim Schwartz called the injury "fairly significant" during Monday's press conference.

"As of right now it looks like I'm not going to play this week," Sims said Wednesday. The Lions travel to Minnesota for a 1 p.m. game this Sunday.

"I've never had a hamstring injury so I'm taking it day-to-day," Sims added. "I'm hoping God blesses me and lets me get back a little sooner. I hate the feeling of being away from football and not being on the field."

"They say it takes a good two or three weeks depending on how severe it is," Sims said.

Rookie DeAndre Levy would start in Sims' place.
