Andrew Romine started at shortstop in Suarez's place and batted ninth on Tuesday.
Suarez was forced to leave Monday's game after successfully stealing a base in the fifth inning. Almost immediately after sliding into second base, he motioned toward the dugout for help.
It was reminiscent of the rookie Suarez's first game in the Majors earlier this season, when he injured his knee going into second base. He missed just two games then, and the Tigers are hoping this can be a similar issue that will heal with a few days of rest.
