Spain injured his ankle in the team's 24-20 preseaon win over the Detroit Lions Friday night. He was carted into the locker rom for evaluation. When McDermott was asked for a prognosis, he said, "We don't really know right now. It's too early. So we're just taking it one day at a time right now."
McDermott also said he was "shocked" upon hearing the news of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck's retirement, calling him a "class act," congratulating him on a great career, and saying that he wished he had seen him play more and longer.
