Joseph Fauria's got quite the story behind his sprained ankle, which caused him to miss yesterday's game against the Jets. The Lions tight end says he hurt himself last week in an attempt to thwart his puppy, Lil' Rufio, from peeing inside the house.

Fauria doesn't have a clear timetable on his return yet.

Here are some photos of Lil' Rufio, who has his own Instagram account:

And a video of him giving daps:

Lil' Rufio is simultaneously a good and bad doggie.
