The Detroit Lions have released cornerback Drayton Florence.
Florence played for the Carolina Panthers last season and recorded 26 tackles and two interceptions in 14 games.
The Lions, who were already missing safety Louis Delmas, and cornerbacks Chris Houston and Bill Bentley before Sunday’s loss at San Francisco, lost cornerback Drayton Florence for at least eight weeks with a broken arm.
There is a chance the Lions could open the season with two starting cornerbacks who weren’t with the team a week ago.
The Detroit Lions have signed cornerback Drayton Florence and released safety Ricardo Silva.
