ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) – Detroit Lions cornerback Eric Wright has injured his right leg.

Wright took himself out of practice Monday morning and had the inside of his right leg stretched. He went back in, then took himself out a few plays later.

The projected starter later had his right groin wrapped with ice.

Chris Houston, the other starting cornerback, is also injured. Aaron Berry and Brandon McDonald have been pushed into first-string roles during practice.

Detroit plays its second preseason game Friday at Cleveland, Wright’s former team.
