Detroit Lions P Sam Martin (groin) normally handles kickoff duties, but he said Wednesday, Dec. 18, he felt a pull on the inside of his right groin during warmups before the Week 15 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Dec. 16. While Martin punted during the game, PK David Akers handled kickoffs as well as his placekicking chores. The team might employ the same split in the Week 16 game against the New York Giants.
