The Lions placed wide receiver Greg Salas and defensive tackle Corey Wootton on injured reserve Saturday, reports the team's official website. Salas was dealing with a knee injury while Wootton had a torn pectoral.
The Lions have signed two veterans - wideout Greg Salas and cornerback Chris Owens - per the Detroit Free Press. The team later confirmed the report. Salas last played with the Jets. He compiled his most productive numbers since his rookie year last season, but that only amounted to eight catches for 167 yards. Owens has played with four different teams over the last four seasons, but did get into 11 games with Kansas City in 2014. He has not recorded an interception since 2010.
A hamstring injury has landed Jets wideout Greg Salas on injured reserve just days after he scored his first touchdown of the season in the Monday night loss to Miami. Salas, whose score was on the ground and had not caught a pass since Week 6, finishes the year with just eight receptions for 167 yards. The Jets have promoted fellow wide receiver Chris Owusu from the practice squad to take his place on the active roster.
After scoring on a 20-yard end-around in the first quarter, his first career touchdown, Jets wideout Greg Salas left the game against the Dolphins with a hamstring injury. The Jets said Salas won't return.
All the Jets who were probable on the injury report are active for Monday's game against the Bills in Detroit. The list includes running backs Chris Ivory (shoulder) and Chris Johnson (knee), guard Oday Aboushi (shoulder), linebacker Antwan Barnes (knee), guard Willie Colon (knee), wideout T.J. Graham (neck), linebacker David Harris (shoulder), safety Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf), center Nick Mangold (shoulder), linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), receiver Greg Salas (wrist), cornerback Darrin Walls (calf) and quarterback Geno Smith (right shoulder).
