The Detroit Lions have made the move we all expected after hearing that George Winn was getting promoted. They officially placed Montell Owens on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. There is speculation that since he is missing yet another season to injury that he has likely played his last game in Detroit. Owens’ value is on special teams, but a player like George Winn can fill that spot and add value to the running game as well.
As a foot note, the team filled the practice squad spot vacated by Winn by signing running back William Powell. Powell last played for Arizona.
