FitzSimmons, Smith on IR

Tight end Casey FitzSimmons and running back Kevin Smith were officially placed on the injured reserve list on Tuesday, ending their seasons prematurely.

Coach Jim Schwartz had announced on Monday that Smith was done for the season after tearing at least one knee ligament late in Sunday’s 48-3 loss at Baltimore. He will undergo surgery on his injured left knee.

FitzSimmons suffered a concussion on Dec. 6 in the loss at Cincinnati. He sat out Sunday’s game against the Ravens after not practicing all last week.

The two starters are the 14th and 15th Lions to be placed on the injured reserve list so far this season.

The Lions host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
