Lions | Jason Hanson battling injuries, younger competition

Detroit Lions PK Jason Hanson (knee) is battling a slew of recent injuries, and, for the first time in his career, another player as he competes in training camp with PK Dave Rayner, who is 13 years younger than the 41-year-old Hanson. "We have a lot of confidence in Jason," head coach Jim Schwartz said. "If we have a pressure kick, I'd trust Jason to do it. It's just been a matter of health. He's gotten a little bit older, and the last two training camps he's been hurt. But as far as making the kicks and things like that, I have no problem."
