Kevin Smith sits out Lions practice with Levy, Brown
ALLEN PARK -- With the regular season fast approaching, the Lions’ injury list has shrunk considerably.
The most noticeable absence from practice today (Tuesday) was RB Kevin Smith. It could be that he was scheduled to sit. Smith carried the ball eight times and caught two passes in Saturday’s win.
Missing from practice today were safety C.C. Brown (forearm), LB DeAndre Levy (groin) and CB Jack Williams who was moved from the physically unable to perform list to reserve PUP today. Now he does not count against the roster. After six weeks the Lions will have a window when they have to decide whether to activate him.
Safeties Louis Delmas and Ko Simpson did practice today.
Tackle Tyler Polumbus, who was signed last week, is no longer on the roster. An announcement is expected this afternoon.
The Lions have now cut the roster to 75. Today was the deadline. The final cut to 53 must be made by 6 p.m. on Saturday.
