Season over for Jared DeVries

Jared DeVries’ comeback for a 12th season with the Detroit Lions will not happen after all.

The veteran defensive lineman was placed on injured reserve today with a knee issue, ending his season for the second straight year, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. DeVries missed last season when he suffered a torn Achilles tendon, and it is certainly fair to wonder whether this will mark the end of a career for the 34-year-old.

The Lions also waived/injured safety David Roach, who they had claimed off waivers from the St. Louis Rams less than two weeks ago. The specific nature of his injury is not known.
