RB Noah Cain doesn’t return after injuring ankle on first series

Noah Cain suffered an ankle injury on the Lions’ first series Saturday and went to the sideline.

Cain went into the medical tent, and then a few minutes later, he limped to the locker room.

Cain was replaced by Devyn Ford on the first series.

Cain had a terrific start to last season to earn the starting job, but he suffered an ankle injury that kept him out of action for a while.

This season, Cain is the lead tailback after the announcement that Journey Brown could miss the season with a medical condition.

The running back position was considered a major strength for the Lions. But that was with Brown and Cain expected to lead the way in the top two spots.

We’ll see if Cain returns to this game. If not, then all of a sudden running back could be a concern heading into next week’s showdown against Ohio State.

The Lions have two freshmen four-star recruits — Caziah Holmes and Keyvone Lee — behind Ford, but neither has played and would be in a challenging spot if they’re to be counted on heavily against the Buckeyes.

Holmes came in for his first career carry in the second quarter. He gained 4 yards and fumbled, but replay ruled he was down before the ball came out.

We’ll have more updates on Cain’s situation as they develop in the game.

    Damn luck. Once a strength of the team, now is an area of concern. Any news on Journey Brown, about what medical condition he has?
