ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -Detroit Lions cornerback Stanley Wilson will miss the rest of the season with a torn Achilles' tendon.
The four-year veteran was injured in Thursday night's preseason opener against the New York Giants, a 13-10 Detroit victory.
A torn Achilles' tendon typically requires up to a year of rehabilitation after surgery.
Wilson started the first five games at right corner last season but went on season-ending injured reserve with a knee injury in November. He has played 32 games, including nine starts, in three seasons with the Lions.
