DET: PK Hanson is doing well with his recovery - [Full Article]

The Lions released kicker Billy Cundiff, but that doesn't mean that Jason Hanson (knee) will be ready for the regular season opener. Because he's a vested veteran, Cundiff would've received his full 16-game salary if he was on the final 53-man roster. The Lions are expected to re-sign Cundiff (or another kicker) before the Saints game.

While Hanson is doing well with his recovery, and could possibly kick field goals against the Saints, he won't be ready to boom kickoffs for a couple of more weeks so another kicker will be needed.
