Lions RB Kevin Smith said in the locker room after practice Monday that his ankle injury was just a tweak and nothing serious.
“You never want to deal with that high ankle sprain,” he said.
Smith would know, he played through a high ankle sprain almost all of last year and was never 100-percent after suffering it against the Packers on Thanksgiving one week after a 140-yard performance against the Panthers.
“I got a break,” he said of Saturday's injury. “It takes so long to recover (from a high ankle sprain).”
