The Detroit Lions have announced that they have placed RB Kevin Smith and TE Casey FitzSimmons on the Injured/Reserve list.
Smith suffered a knee injury in the second half of last Sunday’s loss at Baltimore. In his Monday afternoon press conference, Head Coach Jim Schwartz confirmed that it was a serious injury that would need season-ending surgery, but didn’t touch on specifics.
Schwartz: “It (is) a season ending injury for him and then where it goes from there will depend on what happens when the doctors get in there and really see what’s at stake and all.”
FitzSimmons has been placed on I/R due to a concussion, which he suffered during Detroit’s Week 13 match-up at Cincinnati.
The Lions have signed TE Michael Matthews and RB Cedric Peerman from the practice squad to the active roster.
