Detroit LB Sims leaves with hamstring injury

BY foxsports • November 8, 2009

Detroit Lions outside linebacker Ernie Sims left in the third quarter against Seattle with a hamstring injury suffered trying to track down Seattle running back Julius Jones. Sims appeared to injure his right leg, although the Lions didn't specify which leg. The team said his return was questionable. Sims was chasing Jones at the front-end of a screen pass that went for 49 yards. After laying on the field for several minutes, Sims slowly walked to the Lions bench. He had three tackles. Detroit cornerback William James was also shaken up later in the quarter after a hard collision with receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh. He returned in the fourth quarter.
