Nick Fairley will not play against Cowboys

The Lions will not have defensive tackle Nick Fairley for Sunday’s Wild Card game against the Cowboys.

Fairley has not played since Week 8 while dealing with a knee injury.

News that he will not play on Sunday is hardly a surprise. There is some belief that he could return if the Lions advance. Regardless Fairley would only be a package player.

Though four years in the NFL Fairley has never played a full regular season. He finished this year with 14 tackles and a sack though eight contests. Set to become a free agent there is no reason to believe he will ever wear a Lions uniform again.
