Detroit Lions nickel cornerback Bill Bentley has officially been ruled out for the season suffering a torn ACL reports Tim Twentyman. Bentley was injured in the first-quarter in Monday's game against the New York Giants. Bentley, who had a solid preseason, had expected to have an expanded role in Teryl Austin's defensive scheme in 2014.

It is likely Bentley will undergo surgical reconstruction of his knee in the coming weeks in hopes for returning to the Lions' secondary next season.  The loss of Bentley has led the Lions to scramble to fill the hole in their defense trying out several free agents this week.
