Asked if the NFL Players Association might have something to say about a team in London, Quin smiled and said, “They might.”
The Detroit Lions made several personnel moves Monday before leaving for London.
Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said he did not know whether the team worked out Hayne.
Johnson had said earlier that he seriously doubted the injury would prevent him from making the trip.
It’s “London Calling” for the Detroit Lions–who’ll ‘clash’ next week with the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley Stadium in England.
Unfortunately for the receiver, he was also asked about multiple stories that surfaced that he was punched in the face by former teammate Percy Harvin who was traded to the Jets over the weekend.
Detroit’s stout defense deserves much of the credit for the Lions being 2-0 without Calvin Johnson, and so does wide receiver Golden Tate.
“Me and Diggs switched up something we had been doing all game and gave a different look,” Glover Quin explained after the game.
Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes in the final 3:38, including the winner to Corey Fuller with 1:48 remaining, and the Detroit Lions rallied for a 24-23 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Tate joined the Lions in free agency this season.
