Despite injury issues during his first two NFL seasons and only about a five-game stretch in his pro career where he's been at the top of his game, former Williamson High and Auburn University defensive tackle Nick Fairley has drawn plenty of praise as he prepares for his third season. Or maybe that's why: Opponents and analysts think a healthy Fairley will be a handful for opposing offensive linemen.
Fairley and the Detroit Lions host the New England Patriots in an NFL preseason game at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Ford Field.
Fairley and Detroit's other starting defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh, have the attention of New England quarterback Tom Brady.
