ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Lions have signed quarterback Drew Henson off the practice squad and the former Michigan star is expected to serve as the No. 2 quarterback on Thanksgiving Day.
Coach Rod Marinelli says backup quarterback Dan Orlovsky is out with a broken hand and Drew Stanton is "very, very doubtful" after sustaining a concussion Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Lions also have been granted a 24-hour extension -- until Tuesday at noon -- to sell fewer than 1,000 remaining tickets and lift a TV blackout for Thursday's game against the Tennessee Titans. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
