Lions try to regroup after 2 straight losses, weekend off

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Khyri Thornton missed the first six games of the season while suspended, and although the Detroit Lions played fine for a while without the defensive tackle, toward the end of his ban, a key teammate went down with a serious injury.

Haloti Ngata went on injured reserve a couple of weeks ago following an elbow injury, leaving Detroit without a crucial interior defensive lineman. That's an area where Thornton may now be able to help.

"That was like the heart and soul of our defensive line, but at the end of the day, he always tells us, keep pushing forward, play for him," Thornton said.
