It took a quarter of the season for him to see the field,Authentic Jabaal Sheard Jersey, second-round pick Teez Tabor has finally settled into a role on defense.,Authentic Johnathan Hankins Jersey, but as the Detroit Lions head into the December stretch run

Tabor has played in most of the Lions' dime defensive packages in recent weeks,womens Al Woods Jersey, where the team has used him both in coverage and as a blitzer.

Tabor had one tackle and missed a fourth-quarter sack on Case Keenum in Thursday's 30-23 loss to the Minnesota Vikings; last week he had two pressures on rookie Mitchell Trubisky in a win over the Chicago Bears.

"I like it,womens Jon Bostic Jersey," Tabor said of his expanding role. "You get to do a little bit of everything. It fits my skill set."

A healthy inactive for four of the Lions' six games before the bye, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said recently.,Authentic Deyshawn Bond Jersey, Tabor has earned playing time with the progress he's shown in practice

Against the Bears, Nevin Lawson and D.J. Hayden have rotated at the position.,womens Jeremy Vujnovich Jersey, the Lions even gave Tabor one series at right cornerback opposite Darius Slay in their nickel defense. Typically

While the Lions need to see what they have in Tabor heading into the off-season — both Lawson and Hayden will be free agents in March, and Tabor was drafted with one eye on 2018 — Tabor has been a solid contributor to the Lions secondary.

On Thursday,Authentic Antonio Morrison Jersey, he was kicking himself after the game for the fourth-quarter sack he missed on Keenum.

"Coach dialed it up perfectly, I just got to make the play," Tabor said. "That was great coaching. That falls strictly on me, I just got to make that."

The Lions had just pulled within four points and had the Vikings in a third-and-4 situation at their own 27 when Tabor came with a blitz from just inside the right numbers.

He split right tackle Rashod Hill and right guard Joe Berger as the Vikings slid protection the opposite way, but Keenum faked right then took a step to his left as Tabor spun off the Vikings quarterback with his right arm.

Keenum completed a 10-yard pass to Adam Thielen to extend the drive, the missed sack cost the Lions a chance to build off the momentum they seemed to have seized one series earlier., and though the Vikings eventually punted

Tabor acknowledged the missed opportunity after the game, saying that was a point where the game still "could have went either way."

"I was close, I just got to come under control," he said. "I was going too fast. I just got to come under control, that’s it."

Caldwell said if new defensive end Dwight Freeney had played Thursday,womens Jabaal Sheard Jersey,womens Johnathan Hankins Jersey, it would have been "the shortest turnaround that anybody has ever had.",Authentic Al Woods Jersey, less than 24 hours after the Lions claimed him off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks

"He’ll be ready next week,Authentic Jon Bostic Jersey Caldwell said.

Freeney,womens Rigoberto Sanchez Jersey,womens Deyshawn Bond Jersey, 37, had three sacks in four games with the Seahawks after signing in October,Authentic Jeremy Vujnovich Jersey,and is expected to play as a situational pass rusher for the Lions.
