UH OH, didnt take long for the upgraded OL advantage to disappear. Lions might have been better off with the more versatile Reiff over Wagner. Lets see how aggressive Quinn is in reacting to this problem.

Joe Dahl is getting work at LT and who knows just maybe Quinn is truly a top level talent evaluator. There is plenty of cap space to add a body if needed, but it would be really nice to see the next man up philosophy work for the Lions until Decker can come back.

I'm hoping an aging vet shakes loose somewhere during the June cuts. I'd overpay a bit for a decent guy to play the 8-10 games decker may be out.

Cyrus Kouandjio visiting. Young guy that was a top tackle in his draft class. Even though he was bad in Buffalo, he has great size and could show something with a new team.

Non-surgical stressed Labrum: 3+ months.
Surgical Torn Labrum: 6+ months.
AC Separation: 3 months with surgery. (A little shorter without surgery, but these tend to hang on and become nagging problems without surgery.)
Fracture: 2-3 months or longer. It just depends on what, where and how bad.
Surgical Torn RC: A year.

A whole plethora of strains and sprains: 1-3 months.

Rapoport is reporting Decker had a torn Labrum and should be out 4-6 months. Given the recovery time I would expect Decker to go on the reserve/PUP list, so even if he heals like a superhuman we probably wont see him any earlier than week 8.

Quinn making more moves and not just sitting on his hands. Traded a sixth for Greg Robinson and signed Cyrus Kouandjio. Neither guy matches Decker's level, but both were consider good prospects coming out and will have a chance to see if a change of scenery/scheme can help. It would be really great if both these guys can take the back up OT spots once Decker is back. Robinson could even be a possible replacement for Lang in a few years if he doesn't price himself out of the Lions range filling in at LT.

Greg Robinson has been a big bust with the Rams but I think he s a big upgrade over Lucas. Robinson is still only 24 years old and has athleticism for the position. I personally never liked him coming out of college but hoping a change of scenery and Stafford s ability to get the ball out quickly can help Robinson. I also do think Robinson can be a good run blocker which is maybe what Rao is alluding to about moving to guard later.

Kouandjio sounds like he either had a drug issue or mental health problem with his recent incident. He could be a servicable right tackle in case the Lions need to flip Wagner for a while. Not sure if he s any better of a prospect than Corey Robinson despite being more highly touted.

We probably dont see Decker until early/mid November if at all. Lions would have to decide if its worth bringing him into the fold for the last month. His labrum should be healed in mid September but how long does it take him to get into football shape thereafter? A wise organization wouldnt put him out there until he has some strength recovered in that shoulder.

As for the depth chart, I see the Lions starting five as G. Robinson/Glasgow/Swanson/Lang/Wagner, Laken Tomlinson is the next man on the interior, and although Lucas looks like the next man up on the outside I see Robinson or Kouandjio winning that battle. Dahl is probably a lock bc of his youth and versatility. Leaving everyone else fighting for the 9th and potentially 10th spots. Pretty good competition behind the starters, better than in past years even with Decker out.

Lucas is probably gone unless Kouandijo craps the bed. He's owed $1.8M this year and with them adding Robinson's guaranteed $3.3M salary, it only makes sense to drop Lucas.

Don't be too sure Robinson has a guaranteed roster spot. The biggest knock on him as a pro is that the dude has major problems with holding (from what I have read). If coaching can't fix that, he could be the odd man out. Let's face it, we're kicking the tires on him. if he's crap, he'll be gone.

His salary is guaranteed, seems doubtful he would be released unless he causes problems. Robinson may have been bad with the Rams, but he isn't much if any worse than Lucas and Corey Robinson have been. Greg will make the team at least as a back up and it just makes sense Lucas ends up as the odd man out with his $1.8M price tag. Even Kouandjio while being bad for Buffalo still would be an upgrade over Lucas or C.Robinson.
