Lions | Trying out kickers in coming week

Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz gave PK David Akers a public vote of confidence after he missed his fifth kick of the season in Thursday's 40-10 win over the Green Bay Packers, but the Lions are planning to work out kickers next week as they weigh their options at the position. Akers, who signed a one-year deal to replace long-time kicker Jason Hanson in April, has made just 15 of 20 field-goal attempts this year and the Lions rank 29th in the league in field-goal percentage.
