Lions signed CB Danny Gorrer and LB Julian Stanford to the practice squad.

The Lions placed fellow CB Nevin Lawson on the injured reserve, which is why they signed Gorrer from the practice squad. Both players will have little impact in fantasy leagues.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Monday cornerback Nevin Lawson dislocated his toes Sunday against the Panthers and he "does not anticipate" Lawson returning this season.

Lawson served as the back-up to Rashean Mathis but was also heavily involved in the nickel package. Nate Ness is expected to see an increase in defensive snaps moving forward.

C.J. Mosley had two sacks against the Panthers on Sunday.

After a quiet open to the season in Week 1, Mosley broke out in this one and did the best he could to help contain Cam Newton. His two sacks are his first of the season but should continue to be a decent IDP choice if tackles aren't recorded.

Stephen Tulloch recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) and one sack against the Panthers on Sunday.

Tulloch was all over the place in this one and led the team in tackles and tackles-for-a-loss. He now leads the team with 18 tackles (13 solo) and makes for a solid IDP play.

Nate Freese converted his lone extra-point attempt but missed two field goals durin ghte Lions' 24-7 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

Well, you're not going to come in here, replace a legend like Jason Hanson and then miss two field goals and keep your job, buddy. Sure, both were from 49 yards out and that's not the easiest kick in the world, but that's still six points left on the field. The clock now ticks on which kicker is the first to lose his job and at 0-for-3 on kicks of 40-yards or more, Freese appears to be a front-runner.

Eric Ebron caught three passes on five targets for 38 yards against the Panthers on Sunday.

Ebron saw no catches on just one target during the Lions' Week 1 match-up with the Giants, so having him see five targets this week definitely gives promise. Of course the Lions were playing from behind all day and forced to throw it a lot more, but if Ebron can start to make a little bit of noise as a pass-catcher here, it could lead to something more.

Golden Tate caught five passes on eight targets for 57 yards against the Panthers on Sunday.

It was a pretty quiet day for Tate as Matthew Stafford stayed pretty heavily focused on Calvin Johnson and Joique Bell. But credit the Panthers pass rush for not allowing Stafford time to look for anyone else. Ten points in a PPR league isn't great, but it's better than a poke in the eye.
