Lions | Coach explains Joseph Fauria's decreased snaps

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said TE Joseph Fauria received only 15 snaps in the team's Week 8 game because the team was using more three-receiver sets during the game. "I think that everybody's role is going to change from week-to-week and things like that," Schwartz said. "We used a lot of three wide receiver personnel and it only keeps one tight end on the field. That's no reflection on him. He wasn't benched or deemphasized. We wanted to keep them in nickel packages and I thought our offense did a good job."
