The Lions made their final two roster moves late Saturday, releasing tackle Jonathan Scott and placing running back/return man Aveion Cason on injured reserve with a badly sprained ankle.
By placing Cason on IR and ending his season, the Lions enter next week with just two running backs, Kevin Smith and Tatum Bell, and no real return man. Fullback Jerome Felton also can carry the ball, but expect the Lions to explore their trade/free-agent options.
In cutting Scott, they opted to keep Damion Cook as the final offensive lineman.
Rookie seventh-round pick Landon Cohen also made the team as the 11th defensive lineman. Cohen earned a spot with a strong final preseason game.
