Detroit Free Press - [Full Article]

Jim Schwartz gave embattled kicker David Akers a public vote of confidence after he missed his fifth kick of the season in Thursday’s 40-10 win over the Green Bay Packers, but the Detroit Lions are planning to work out kickers next week as they weigh their options at the position.

Akers, who signed a one-year deal to replace long-time kicker Jason Hanson in April, has made just 15 of 20 field-goal attempts this year and the Lions rank 29th in the league in field-goal percentage.


Fantasy Impact:
Akers missed a 31-yarder on Thanksgiving against the Packers and is coming off a shaky season with the 49ers, so the Lions have to play this one smart as the playoffs drawn near. Akers is safe - for now.
