Report: Quin has minor ankle surgery

INDIANAPOLIS -- In addition to Calvin Johnson and Ziggy Ansah, Lions starting safety Glover Quin had surgery recently according to the team's official team reporter.

Quin had minor surgery on his ankle, which had bothered him much of the season, but Quin played in every game, making 57 tackles, picking off three passes and forcing two fumbles last season.

He was signed by the Lions last season after he spent his first four seasons in Houston.

Quin will now be looked to as the leader of the secondary after the team released his safety counterpart, Louis Delmas, last week. General manager Martin Mayhew indicated it would be unlikely that Delmas would return to the team in 2014.
