5 Lions players revert to the team’s IR list after going unclaimed on waivers

·1 min read

When the Detroit Lions reduced the roster on Tuesday from 80 down to 53 players, they used a technicality with five players. They were all designated as waived/injured.

Those five players are now back on the Lions roster and payroll, at least temporarily. When they went unclaimed on Wednesday, the quintet reverted to the Lions’ injured reserve list.

DT Eric Banks

WR Trinity Benson

DL Jashon Cornell

OL Kevin Jarvis

S C.J. Moore

All are officially out for the season for Detroit. However, the players could accept an injury settlement with the Lions and play for another team later in the year.
