ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have waived running back Tion Green.

Green appeared in five games last season for Detroit, rushing for 165 yards and two touchdowns on 42 carries. Green was an undrafted rookie last year out of Cincinnati.

Detroit has tried to revamp its running game this offseason, signing running back LeGarrette Blount and drafting running back Kerryon Johnson in the second round.
