Culpepper, Lenon injured for Lions

Lions coach Rod Marinelli confirmed injuries to QB Daunte Culpepper (shoulder) and LB Paris Lenon (chest) during Sunday’s game against the Vikings, but didn’t know the severity of either injury.

Culpepper was injured on the Lions’ next-to-last play of the game when he was hit from behind while throwing the ball and sacked for a 5-yard loss. Culpepper’s right arm was hit while he was in his throwing motion. It was clear he was in pain, and he didn’t move the shoulder while walking off the field. Culpepper indicated during a postgame media session that he would undergo an MRI exam on Monday.
