Nathan Vasher Has Surgery, Will Miss Detroit Game

I understand things happen and not all the injuries can be controlled or minimized, but we put way too much money into Tommie Harris, Charles Tillman and Nathan Vasher for them to be missing games so often.

Vasher who left last weeks game versus Philadelphia for a period with a shoulder injury had surgery and is expected to miss this Sunday's game against the Lions.

Corey Graham is scheduled to slide into his spot assuming Charles  Tillman is able to go.

The good in all this is Graham has actually already been taking some of Vasher's playing time:

Corey Graham figures to step in for Vasher and already has been doing so against double-tight-end formations after doing a good job spelling Tillman in training camp when he missed time with family issues.

Graham is also a bigger and more physical corner back than Vasher and that actually could be useful for us againts Roy Williams and  Calvin Johnson.
