RB Rasheed Williams cut as Detroit Lions deal with O-line injuries
For the second time in a month, the Detroit Lions have announced the release of undrafted rookie running back Rasheed Williams, according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. Williams was first released during OTA workouts, when he was finishing classes at Alfred State.
The Lions likely released Williams in order to free up a roster spot for an offensive lineman, MLive.com reports. The team is currently without its top two right tackles in LaAdrian Waddle (ACL) and Cornelius Lucas (undisclosed injury).
At minicamp practice on Tuesday, converted tight end Michael Williams took the first-team snaps at right tackle, per MLive.com. The report points out that the only options behind Williams are former defensive lineman Xavier Proctor and rookie seventh-rounder Corey Robinson.
