Stanford (ankle) cleared waivers and reverted to the Jets' injured reserve, Dennis Waszak Jr. of AP Sports reports. Stanford was waived/injured by the Jets on Dec. 7 and reverts to IR because no other team in the league placed a claim on him. He'll look to return to full strength in time for OTAs.
Stanford was waived/injured by the Jets on Wednesday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Stanford injured his ankle Monday night against the Colts and wasn't able to practice Wednesday. The Jets claimed ex-Jaguar Arthur Brown off waivers to get back to the 53-man roster limit.
Stanford has been signed from the Jets' practice squad, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. Stanford will look to provide depth to a thin linebacker corps for the Jets. Erin Henderson is likely out for the year after being placed on the NFI and Darron Lee remains sidelined with an ankle injury, so Stanford could see some immediate action in Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.
The Lions put cornerback Nevin Lawson (dislocated toes) on injured reserve, signed cornerback Danny Gorrer and promoted linebacker Julian Stanford from the practice squad.
The Lions filled their entire 10-man practice squad, signing guard Rodney Austin, tight end Michael Egnew, fullback Emil Igwenagu, safety Nate Ness, receiver Andrew Peacock, defensive tackle Xavier Proctor, cornerback Mohammed Seisay, linebacker Julian Stanford, offensive tackle Michael Williams and running back George Winn.
