Veteran Lions DL Speaks Out After Being Benched for Season Opener

Following considerable speculation, Detroit Lions defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs stated that he will not play in the team's season opener on Thursday.

Buggs told reporters after practice on September 4 that the team informed him that he will be sitting out the Lions' game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

"As of right now, they told me that I was not going to play," Buggs told "So, that's what we've got, and I'm going to be honest about it

because they were honest with me about it." And, for the time being, I will not be playing."

Buggs prompted curiosity about his future with the squad on September 3 when he headed to Twitter to deliver a cryptic message about his circumstances altering.

"I'm fine, but I'm aware that circumstances change #96BALLFOREVER." "Y'all gonna see," Buggs commented on Twitter.

Buggs missed practice on Saturday, prompting some fans to speculate that he would be traded away from the squad. On Monday, the defensive

tackle stated that there was "nothing to address" regarding his standing with the team, implying that it was a personal rather than a team concern.

"I'm not going to say that technically. "I'm just saying in life, it's nothing to do with football, nothing to do with here," Buggs explained.

"So, I don't want anyone to run with that context." Relationships, on the other hand, change. That's all I have to say; there's nothing else to say."
