Lions waive Kalonji Kashama with injured designation

After only one day of training camp, the Detroit Lions waived defensive end Kalonji Kashama with the injured designation.

The Detroit Lions just wrapped up their first training camp practice of 2014 an hour or so ago, but they have already decided to make a change to their roster. Specifically, they waived defensive end Kalonji Kashama with the injured designation. This means that the Lions could put him on injured reserve if he clears waivers, but he will likely just be released with an injury settlement instead.

Kashama joined the Lions in June as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Michigan. He took part in the Lions' rookie minicamp in May on a tryout basis, and he later got an offer to actually join the team. At the time, he looked like a potential practice squad candidate more than anything, and now, after one day of practice, he's on the waiver wire.

With Kashama being let go, the Lions have only 89 players on their roster. This means there is one vacancy. I'd imagine it will be filled by the time the Lions hit the practice field on Tuesday afternoon, but it's unclear at this time who might be brought in to take Kashama's spot.
