Ricky Wagner Jersey White
Vanderbilt University lost their 2018 special teams coach Shawn Mennenga when he took a job running the special teams for the Packers and they’ll replace him with a coach who was most recently with a different NFC North team.The school announced that Devin Fitzsimmons will be their new special teams coach. Fitzsimmons will also be the tight ends coach on Derek Mason’s staff in Nashville.“We are very fortunate to bring Devin Fitzsimmons on board at Vanderbilt Danny Amendola Jersey ,” Mason said in a statement. “Devin has tremendous expertise in all areas of special teams, and has coached some with some of the NFL’s top specialists while on staff at Detroit. His resume also includes a successful tenure working with Lions tight ends and several years as a collegiate offensive coach.”Fitzsimmons opened last season as the assistant special teams coach in Detroit, but took on more responsibilities after the team fired special teams coach Joe Marciano in November. He was with the team since the 2014 season and, as Mason noted Christian Jones Jersey White , also worked with tight ends for some of his Lions tenure.The Lions hired John Bonamego as their new special teams coach this offseason. Though it took them a bit to realize it, Kerryon Johnson became the lead back the Lions have been looking for.They’ll know that going into 2019, because he’s done for this year.Accoriding to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Lions are shelving the running back for the rest of the season Ricky Wagner Jersey White , putting him on injured reserve.Johnson injured his knee in November against the Panthers, and there was some thought he might return this year. But with the playoffs no longer a possibility, shutting down the rookie was the prudent play.The second-round pick was part of a job-share much longer than he should have been earlier this year, but he still leads the team with 641 rushing yards despite missing the last four games. He averaged 5.4 yards per attempt.When they upset the Patriots in September Tracy Walker Jersey White , he became the first Lion to post a 100-yard game since Reggie Bush in 2013.
