Milligan was waived by the Colts on Friday. Milligan was promoted from the Colts' practice squad to the active roster last Saturday and was not active for last week's win over the Giants. The 24-year-old will likely have to wait until 2019 to try and make his NFL debut, with the regular season finishing up Sunday.
The Colts promoted Milligan to the 53-man roster Saturday. Milligan didn't secure a 53-man spot out of the preseason, but he will provide some depth in the secondary with a number safeties injured for the contest. Should he take the field Sunday, it would mark the first time in his career he's appeared in a game.
Milligan left Thursday's game against the Browns with a chest injury and will not return, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports. Milligan is currently sitting as a depth option on the Lions' safety depth chart, and he may be on the outside looking in for a roster spot. He will hope the injury is not serious in order to have a chance at making Detroit's 53-man squad.
Milligan was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Milligan joined the Lions in late November after an injury to safety Tavon Wilson (shoulder), and did not see game action. The move creates room for the return of offensive lineman Joe Dahl (lower leg) from injured reserve.
Mulligan (undisclosed) was activated from the Lions' Physically Unable to Perform list Monday. Milligan landed on the PUP list to begin training camp after sitting out the entire 2016 season with a serious injury. It appears the safety is back to full strength, but he'll still need to prove healthy and effective in training camp in order to earn a spot on the Lions' final roster.
