BREAKING: Detroit Lions place 2 more players on reserve/injured

Published

on

It has not been the greatest of seasons for the Detroit Lions in regards to injuries.

On Saturday, the team announced they have placed wide receiver Bruce Ellington and safety Charles Washington on reserve/injured. Altogether, the Lions now have 11 players on the reserve/injured list.

Via Detroit Lions:

The Detroit Lions announced today that they have placed WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) and S Charles Washington (hamstring) on Reserve/Injured and signed WR Chris Lacy and CB Dee Virgin to the active roster from the practice squad. In addition, the Lions have signed free-agent WR Deontez Alexander to the practice squad.

Lacy spent training camp with the Lions and the first 15 weeks of the season on the team’s practice squad. He originally entered the League with the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State following the 2018 NFL Draft.

Virgin returns to the active roster for the second time this season after spending the majority of the season on the team’s practice squad. He originally entered the NFL with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama following the 2017 NFL Draft. 

Alexander returns to the Lions after spending time on the practice squad this season. He originally signed with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Franklin College following the 2018 NFL Draft.

Michigan Wolverines’ National Signing Day recap

Jim Harbaugh and the University of Michigan football coaching staff had a very productive national signing day run. On the first day of the early signing period, the Wolverines were able to fill up almost their entire 2019 Freshman class inking commitments with 25 recruits.

The day was marked by the biggest surprise, maybe in the country, when Daxton Hill decided to send his letter of intent to Michigan. Only 11 days ago, Daxton flipped his commitment to Michigan to Alabama, but today that all changed. Hill is a five-star safety from Oklahoma with a great pedigree. He is the younger brother of Justice Hill, the Oklahoma State running back that just declared for the NFL draft.

Other notable commitments include Zach Charbonnet (RB) and Chris Hinton (DL). Both are in the top 100 nationally and are part of a trio that should be the backbone of this 2019 class. The other major commit was Cornelius Johnson, a top 250 player that, as a wide receiver, is viewed to be the missing piece at a position that Michigan has struggled to fill in its run-heavy offense.

As it stands now, Michigan has the top-ranked recruiting class in the B1G according to multiple sources and are ranked 7th nationally according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Now, I know there is a .0000001% chance of this actually happening, but those players should be available when the Lions are on the clock in each round.
