The Detroit Lions have agreed to a one-year contract extension with running back Zach Zenner.

The Lions announced the move Tuesday, bringing the 27-year-old Zenner back after he rushed for 265 yards on 55 carries in eight games with Detroit last season.

Detroit’s running game got a boost in 2018 from rookie Kerryon Johnson before he went down with a knee injury.
