It may not have resulted in any catches, but former Blaine standout Andrew Price did make his NFL preseason debut with the Detroit Lions Saturday.
According to a message on Monday via Twitter from his father, Darrell, the younger Price saw special teams action on the field goal and PAT (point after touchdown) teams during Detroit’s 16-6 victory over the New York Jets.
“He should get reps at TE (tight end) this next game,” Darrell Price wrote.
He also tweeted a picture of Andrew Price, who is currently wearing No. 47, in uniform lined up on special teams during Saturday’s game.
The Lions will host the New England Patriots at 4 p.m. (PDT) Friday, before wrapping up the preseason Aug. 31 with a trip to play the Buffalo Bills.
The game against the Jets was scheduled to be replayed by NFL Network at 11 p.m. Monday and 7 a.m. Wednesday. NFL Network will replay the Patriots game at 9 p.m. Friday, 1 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Aug. 30.
Price, who graduated from UNLV, signed a free agent contract last Wednesday with the Lions, who are battling a number of injuries at tight end.
