Lions place Nick Fairley on injured reserve

A year which showed promise on the field and frustration off it is over for Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley.

The Lions announced they placed him on injured reserve today, with a shoulder injury. He was injured against the Packers two weeks ago, and was inactive last week against the Cardinals.

Fairley had blossomed into a more disruptive performer on the field, but his off-field issues made it a forgettable year. He was arrested twice, once for DUI and another for marijuana possession, though the marijuana charges were later dropped.

To fill his roster spot, the Lions signed journeyman defensive tackle Ogemdi Nwagbuo.
