Trufant (groin/personal) was released by the Bears on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Trufant suffered a groin injury early in camp and stepped away from the team Aug. 13 due to the death of his father, and the Bears opted to part ways, given he hadn't returned to camp over the past couple weeks. The 30-year-old still wants to play this season, though it's unclear when he may be ready to take the field following the absence.
The Lions released Trufant (hamstring) on Wednesday. The move was expected, and the Lions made it official when the new league year began Wednesday. The 30-year-old cornerback fought through a hamstring injury in 2020, and he struggled when he was on the field, finishing as the team's worst-graded cornerback, per Pro Football Focus. The Lions will save $6.1 million in salary-cap space with the transaction.
Trufant (hamstring) will not return to the Lions' Week 12 contest against the Texans. Trufant exited the matchup in the second quarter with a questionable tag. With Trufant ruled out, the Lions are without either of their top corners for the second half matchup against Deshaun Watson.
Trufant is questionable to return to Thursday's Week 12 matchup against Texans. Trufant has missed several games due to hamstring injuries throughout the season. After playing in three consecutive games, it's possible that Trufant aggravated an earlier knock. If he is unable to return, the Lions will be without their top two corners against Deshaun Watson, who has already thrown for a pair of touchdown passes in the first half.
Trufant (hamstring) upgraded to a full practice Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Vikings, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Trufant has battled a hamstring injury all season, but he'll be able to take the field for the third time this season against Minnesota. The veteran cornerback's practice participation has trended up this week, as his full practice Friday comes on the heels of two limited sessions.
