The Detroit Lions have placed LaAdrian Waddle on injured reserve, effectively ending his injury filled season. Waddle, who was carted off during the Lions week 15 game against the Minnesota Vikings, has reportedly strained his ACL. It is the same injury that Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley suffered and he has been out for over 6 weeks now. Waddle will be replaced by Cornelius Lucas who has played well recently in relief of Waddle and Riley Reiff. Waddle’s move to IR opens a roster spot but currently no moves have been made to fill that spot.
