Draft Scout Bill Nagy News
12/06/12 - C/G Bill Nagy, on injured reserve after ankle surgery before the season, has begun to work out and rehab at the Lions' facility. The Lions were awarded Nagy, 25 and a starter as a rookie, from the Cowboys on Aug. 16. He is very much in the offensive line plans for next season. "He's a very interesting player," coach Jim Schwartz said. "When we played against him down in Dallas a couple of years ago, he did some really good things. He has a future for sure with us."
08/16/12 - C Bill Nagy, who was waived/injured by the Cowboys, was claimed by the Lions.
Nagy was expected to compete for the starting center job but he suffered a high ankle sprain in the opening practice of training camp and had surgery on his left ankle for the second time in 10 months. He fractured the same ankle against the Patriots last October.
The Lions can place Nagy on injured reserve or the physically unable to perform list, which gives him two months to get healthy enough to practice. If that doesn't happen, he can be moved from PUP to injured reserve.
The Cowboys expected Nagy to revert to their own reserve/injured list after clearing waivers. But much like the Patriots did with tight end Jake Ballard -- claimed from the Giants despite a knee injury that will keep him out this season -- the Lions took a low-risk gamble on Nagy returning to good health.
08/16/12 - OG Bill Nagy, waived/injured by the Cowboys Wednesday, was claimed on waivers by the Lions Thursday.
08/16/12 - OG Bill Nagy (high ankle sprain) was waived/injured by the Cowboys Wednesday and will go on injured reserve if he clears waivers Thursday.
01/04/12 - G Bill Nagy was lost in Week 6 with a fractured ankle. He should be ready to go for the offseason program.
