Copeland played in all 16 games last season getting one forced fumble, 7 tackles and 4 assists. This isn’t the kind of news any Lions fan wants to hear on a preseason game. Losing two starters to a game which holds no significance. This will raise question on how many preseason games should be played if any at all.
