Lions Put DT Corey Williams On Season-Ending IR, Bring Back Andre Fluellen
Corey Williamsí season is over, and the Detroit Lions have re-signed Andre Fluellen to be his replacement.
The Lions informed Williams today that they are placing him on season-ending injured reserve because of a right knee injury that has limited him to just seven games this season.
Williams has been dealing with pain in his knee since training camp, underwent surgery in late September and said last week this was the most frustrating season of his nine-year career.
ďI donít like it one bit having to deal with this knee injury,Ē Williams said. ďItís just been a tough year for me. Itís been rough, I ainít going to lie.Ē
A restricted free agent after the season, Williams said he wants to return to the Lions next year and is willing to play whatever role coaches deem necessary. He has six sacks since joining the Lions in a 2010 trade from the Cleveland Browns.
ďIf itís me having to be a backup, then hey, thatís what I got to do,Ē Williams said. ďIf itís, ĎWell, you got to get out here in training camp, and itís like a battle of whoís going to remain the starter,í hey, thatís what Iíll do. I donít have no problem with whatever goes on.Ē
