It was at least a little curious last week when the Lions put tight end Tim Wright on waivers, but now we know why.
The team announced this afternoon that Wright reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers, and that he had torn his ACL.
The Lions acquired Wright in a trade with the Buccaneers (after they had previously traded him to the Patriots and later brought him back).
He played in nine games last year, catching nine passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns. The Rutgers product has 13 touchdowns over his three NFL seasons.
