Mathis back with Lions, says Detroit can move on without Suh

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Rashean Mathis is returning to a Detroit defense missing its biggest star from last season.

He still has high hopes for the Lions in the post-Ndamukong Suh era.

"I'm very confident in the guys who we have," Mathis said on a conference call Thursday. "I'm also confident in our personnel department and getting people here to help us. That's what the NFL is all about. You've always got to lose someone."
