Detroit placed Lelito on injured reserve after he injured his thigh against the Steelers on Oct. 29.

He appeared in two games for the Lions. Lelito replaced Emmett Cleary at guard against the Saints when Cleary went out with an injury. T.J. Lang returned for the loss to the Steelers, leaving Lelito to play special teams.

Lelito played six special teams snaps against the Steelers before being injured.

In four seasons with the Saints, Lelito played in 63 games with 24 starts.
