Why Is Detroit Lions Head Coach Matt Patricia on Crutches?

By

Nothing is going to keep Matt Patricia off the field! The head coach of the Detroit Lions stuck by his team on the field, crutches and all, at the team's season opener against the Arizona Cardinals. 

On Thursday, Sept. 5, the NFL coach told the media (via the Detroit Free Press) that he was going to try and “get out there,” but wasn’t sure what it would feel like “to stand for three hours.” He added: “I think you know me, I’m going to try and get out in front as fast as I can, but I got to be safe, too.”
