12:02 PM ET 11.20 | Detroit Lions' offensive tackle Jeff Backus left early against the Green Bay Packers with a right hamstring injury on Sunday. Backus has started 186 consecutive games, dating back to 2001. Coach Jim Schwartz expressed concern about the veteran's status for Detroit's Thanksgiving day game against the Houston Texans. Riley Reiff, the 2012 first-round pick, is likely to fill in at left tackle if Backus is unavailable.

I'll add another post to this thread so he doesn't feel bad about being ignored.
