There are rumors that there is trouble in the Detroit Lions locker room, as they head into the season opening game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Lions defensive tackle Isaiah Buggs has been told he will be a healthy scratch for Thursday night’s game against the Chiefs, as per sources cited by Detroit News.
Buggs went on X/Twitter and posted the following:
Buggs was not at Lions practice on Saturday, but returned to practice on Monday. He told reporters that the team has informed him that he will not be active for the opener against the Chiefs.
“He’s extremely important, and I kind of feel like every week, you talk about the run game, it always starts inside,” Head Coach Dan Campbell said.
The 27-year-old Buggs joined the Lions late in the 2022 offseason and played all 17 games for the team, starting in 13 of them.
Buggs was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
This is something to keep an eye on and see how affects the Lions against the Chiefs. Locker room issues can affect how a team performs on the field.
