Mo Ibrahim—RB—Detroit Lions

Week 7 @Baltimore Ravens

Mo was resigned to the Lions practice squad last week after the linjuried to several of their other running backs. He was called up form the practice squad and made his NFL debut on playing six special teams snaps. Unfortunately on the 6th one he fielded a short kickoff by the Ravens and returned it for about 6 yards before he was hit awkwardly sending him flying and to the ground with an awful leg injury. He remained in Baltimore on Sunday night and had hip surgery and will obviously miss the remainder of the season—and who knows what this means for his NFL future. Another brutal blow for the star Goper.
