Lions put WR Williams on IR, sign WR Clark

December 10, 2010

ALLEN PARK (AP) -- The Detroit Lions have placed wide receiver Derrick Williams on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Detroit signed wide receiver Brian Clark on Friday to fill the roster spot.

Williams had just three receptions for 30 yards this season. He has made only nine career catches and hasn't scored or made an impact on special teams since Detroit selected him in the third round of the 2009 draft.

Clark has 11 career receptions in four seasons with Tampa Bay and Denver. He was with the Lions during training camp and was among their last cuts before the season started.
