Lions place Rookie CB Alex Carter, a 3rd round pick, to short term injured reserve. He will not be able to play until at least week 10 vs. Green Bay. Carter missed most of the spring with commitment to school at Stanford and injured his ankle prior to camp and has very limited practice time. Many including this blog questioned taking him in third round. It is likely his rookie season will be a washout.
Here is a tribute:

As the this blog predicted, Jermelle Cudjo was brought back for a spot in the rotation on the defensive line. Caraun Reid is hurt and his status is in question for the early part of the season.
