CBs Alphonso Smith, Justin Miller work out for Detroit Lions

ALLEN PARK — With two cornerbacks injured in Sunday’s win at Philadelphia, the Lions are looking for help at the position.

 Former Detroit Lions cornerbacks Alphonso Smith and Justin Miller were in for workouts on Wednesday morning. They left the facility about 1:15 p.m. Both were released in the final round of cuts after training camp on Aug. 31.

  Smith said he’s been in North Carolina “working out, enjoying the off time with my family.’’

  He admitted it was a little odd working out for the Lions, a team he was with for two seasons (2010 and 2011). “Borderline uncomfortable,’’ Smith said.

  He did have a workout with the Miami Dolphins. 

  “That went well,’’ Smith said with a smile. 

  Smith played in a dozen games for the Lions last season with one start. He finished with three interceptions with one returned for a touchdown.

  In Sunday’s win at Philadelphia, cornerback Jacob Lacey left the game with a concussion while rookie Bill Bentley was knocked out with a shoulder injury.

 Coach Jim Schwartz didn’t offer any specifics on either injury in his press conference on Monday.
