Chicago Bears Vs. Detroit Lions Update: Lions Kicker Jason Hanson Placed On Injured Reserve

According to, the Lions' 19-year veteran kicker Jason Hanson has been placed on injured reserve. Hanson, the Lions' all-time leading scorer, was inactive for the last three games, due to a knee injury suffered against the New York Jets on Nov. 17.

After the announcement that third-string quarterback Drew Stanton would start Sunday, receiver Nate Burleson guaranteed a Lions victory over the Chicago Bears this Sunday. So maybe this news will convince him that the Lions are Super Bowl bound this year.
