Detroit Lions put Trey Flowers on NFL injured reserve list
Trey Flowers will miss his third straight game since his knee injury in Week 10 in overtime against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Since signing a free agent deal in 2019, Flowers has struggled to remain consistently available to defend the Lions.
When in good health, Flowers has been productive. Unfortunately, his declining health could force general manager Brad Holmes to make a tough decision during the offseason.
Going forward, the Detroit Lions defense will now be deprived of the veteran defensive lineman, having been placed in the injured reserve.
Austin Bryant and Julian Okwara have been called in to replace Aaron Glenn’s defense to replace the injured veteran.
The Flowers contract is worth $ 90 million and includes $ 56 million in guaranteed money.
