Lions Place Jonathan Scott, Bill Nagy On Injured Reserve

The Detroit Lions placed offensive tackle Jonathan Scott and offensive guard Bill Nagy on injured reserve on Monday afternoon. The move didn't require either player to clear waivers, and it helped get the Lions down under the 75-man limit.

Scott suffered a knee injury at the start of the month and hasn't practiced since then. When the Lions signed him in July, the move added even more depth at offensive tackle to the roster, but this injury kept him from doing much with the team. With him going to injured reserve, he is out for the season.

Nagy is now out for the season as well after being placed on injured reserve. He never practiced for the Lions, as they claimed him off waivers right after he had ankle surgery. The Dallas Cowboys wanted to put him on their IR list, but at that time he needed to clear waivers for that to be possible. The Lions put in a claim for him, and now he's on their IR list. Although he is out for the season, he should be in the mix to make the team next year if he can get healthy.

In other injured reserve news, the Lions released tight end Nathan Overbay and safety Don Carey from IR on Monday. This means both players are now free agents.
