Detroit Lions Put Erik Coleman on IR, Sign Joe Jon Finley


The Lions signed Vincent Fuller last week to add to their depth at safety. It looks like he will get a chance to stick around for the rest of the season because the team has ended Erik Coleman’s season by putting him on injured reserve.

Tight end/H-back Joe Jon Finley will take the roster spot vacated by Coleman. Finley played well in the preseason but got caught up in a numbers game and was among the team’s final cuts. Finley returns at a good time considering Tony Scheffler suffered a concussion in Monday night’s game.
