The Detroit Lions have placed defensive tackle Xavier Proctor on injured reserve. There was mention of him having suffered an injury in practice but no severity details were given at the time. Now it looks like it will be a long term injury and they have moved on without him. Proctor, who has been with the team since last season, will likely remain on IR and not get an injury settlement. The team likes his potential, and with Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley both up for free agency this offseason, I would expect him to compete for a roster spot next season.
