Detroit Lions running back Ameer Abdullah is headed to North Carolina to seek a second opinion on his injured foot from Dr. Robert Anderson, according to ESPN.
Abdullah injured his foot during a 16-15 loss Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Multiple outlets are reporting he is believed to have a foot sprain.
He was able to play only 17 snaps before the injury, but still managed to carry the ball six times for 38 yards. And that's not counting a 14-yard touchdown that was nullified by an Eric Ebron holding penalty.
Abdullah then injured the foot on a second-quarter run and limped to the sideline. He eventually returned to the locker room, and Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington finished off the game. Those guys are expected to shoulder the load if Abdullah is unable to play Sunday against Green Bay, the story said. Zach Zenner could also see some time.
