“SAD”: Lions key player leave the pitch due to a lower leg injury during the team’s mandatory minicamp…

During the team’s required minicamp on Wednesday, Detroit Lions defensive back Khalil Dorsey was taken off the pitch due to a lower leg injury.

Detroit Lions' Khalil Dorsey 'felt dead' dealing with health scare

Dorsey was an important member of the NFC North-winning Lions last season, primarily on special teams. He participated in all three postseason games and played in 13 regular season games, including two as a starter.

Dorsey, who is 26 years old, excelled at Northern Arizona. He was not selected in the draft and joined the Baltimore Ravens as a rookie in 2020, appearing in six games before being placed on injured reserve. He spent the 2022 offseason with the New York Giants before being added to Detroit’s practice squad in the latter part of the season.

Re-signed in March, Dorsey is a member of the Lions’ unexpectedly deep secondary.

The Lions made trades with Tampa Bay to acquire Carlton Davis III and selected Terrion Arnold and Ennis Rakestraw in the first two rounds of the draft in an effort to address a perceived deficiency.

Lions coach Dan Campbell stated earlier this week that the team had a lot of alternatives in the secondary because of talent, competition, and versatility—all before Dorsey’s injury.

“To be honest, it’s exciting because we don’t know who will start for us right now,” Campbell stated on Tuesday. It’s excellent. Nobody can predict who will be our nickel, who will be our safety, or who will be on the outside corners.

“Everything about this is up for grabs. It will be fantastic to watch these guys battle it out and choose who will be the most trustworthy individual for us.
