More punters with issues: Lions punter drops ball in end zone

More punters with issues: Lions punter drops ball in end zone”

Lions punter Kasey Redfern had the unenviable task of attempting a punt out of his own end zone against the Arizona Cardinals during the first quarter of a game in Detroit.

Martin, on the non-football injury list, suffered an ankle injury between the end of the team's mandatory minicamp in June and the start of training camp in late July. He was diagnosed with a torn ACL and MCL and a partial tear of a tendon. But Prater struggled- averaging only 34.8 yards per punt -and the team will search elsewhere to find a competent replacement.

Detroit Lions punter Kasey Redfern is out for the season with a knee injury suffered in his National Football League debut.

Kicker Matt Prater handled punting duties the rest of the game.

Sam Martin, who has served as Detroit's starting punter the last four seasons, is out at least five weeks due to a foot injury he sustained over the off-season.

Caldwell also declined - again - to explain how Martin was injured this summer.

When Lions kicker Matt Prater converted on a 58-yard field goal against the Cardinals, one cameraman put his body on the line to get the flawless shot of the action.
