Lions Place Demarcus Faggins on IR, Sign Jason David

Cornerback Demarcus Faggins was placed on the injured reserve on Tuesday, bringing his season to an end.  Faggins, who had worked his way into the cornerback rotation, was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams.  I'm not exactly sure what he injured, but the severity of it was enough for the Lions to shut him down for the rest of the season.

To fill Faggins' spot on the roster, the Lions signed cornerback Jason David.  David played the first few seasons of his career for the Colts before going to New Orleans for a couple seasons.  He was waived by the Saints in August of this year, and the Lions will be the first team he has played for since then. 

I hate to say this, but David will probably fit right in with the Lions' usually lackluster secondary.  David has been known to give up big plays, something that really started in his first game with New Orleans, which actually was against his former team, the Colts.

In other roster news, the Lions signed running back Cedric Peerman to the practice squad last week and released Tristan Davis, who showed off his excellent speed in the final game of the 2009 preseason.
