Wilson (knee) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. With Rashean Mathis (concussion) already on injured reserve and Nevin Lawson (concussion) in danger of missing Week 11, the Lions badly need to add depth at a position that wasn't exactly a strength to begin with. Wilson had been serving as the team's nickelback.
The Lions have signed former Falcons cornerback Josh Wilson to a one-year deal on Friday, per the team's official website. Wilson, 30, played for four different teams (Seahawks, Ravens, Redskins, Falcons) before signing with Detroit on Friday. He totaled 426 tackles in 118 career games with 85 starts. He posted 27 tackles and one interception in 16 games (four starts) for the Falcons in 2014.
Falcons running back Steven Jackson and wide receiver Julio Jones are both listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Jackson was unable to practice throughout the week and Jones practiced on a limited basis Friday. Guard Jon Asamoah (back) and cornerbacks Robert McClain (illness) and Josh Wilson (hamstring) are all questionable as well. Kicker Matt Bryant (illness) and wide receivers Roddy White (ankle) and Harry Douglas (foot) are considered probable for Sunday. The Falcons are currently 3-point favorites against the Panthers in Week 17.
Falcons cornerback Josh Wilson was forced out of Sunday's game against New Orleans with a hamstring injury. He sustained the injury in the third quarter and was ruled questionable to return to the game.
The Falcons have listed three wide receivers on its final injury report for Week 16 against New Orleans. Julio Jones (hip) was the only wideout that failed to practice this week and was deemed questionable. Roddy White (knee) and Harry Douglas (foot) were ruled probable. Meanwhile, the rest of the injury report included safety William Moore (foot) and guard Jon Asamoah (back) as questionable. Cornerback Josh Wilson (hand) was designated as probable.
