Shaun McDonald, Keith and Dwight Smith Placed on IR

The Lions placed wide receiver Shaun McDonald, cornerback Keith Smith, and safety Dwight Smith on the injured reserve today.  The move ends all three of their seasons with only two weeks left. 

McDonald was suffering from a lingering ankle injury, and Dwight Smith actually fractured his left ankle against the Colts.  Keith Smith had a groin injury and couldn't stay healthy lately.

The move opened up three spots on the roster.  They were filled by safety LaMarcus Hicks, who has been on and off the active roster quite a few times this season, cornerback Chris Roberson (he was on the practice squad), and wide receiver Travis Taylor, who was released by the Panthers at the end of August.
