  • Frank Herron: Back with Carolina's practice squad

    The Panthers restored Herron (undisclosed) from practice-squad injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Herron completed a two-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances in early November, but he had remained on the practice-squad injured list until this week. The 27-year-old will now vie to make a return to NFL action. He played in four games for Detroit last season, posting five tackles (four solo) and one pass defensed.

  • Frank Herron: Lands on practice squad IR

    Herron (undisclosed) has been placed on the Panthers' practice squad injured reserve, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The move appears to have been at least partly made to make room for newly signed veteran receiver Willie Snead. Herron is likely to remain on the practice squad in some capacity unless multiple injuries strike the team's defensive line. The defensive end has a very small chance of making it on the field for the Panthers this season.

  • Panthers' Frank Herron: Quick return to Carolina

    Herron agreed to a contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    Herron was cut by the Panthers on May 10 to make room for one of the team's undrafted free-agent signings, but he didn't have to wait long to return to Carolina. The LSU product saw action in just four games for Detroit last season, recording five tackles (four solo) and a pass breakup. He'll look to latch on as a depth defensive lineman heading into the 2021 season.

    Herron was promoted to the Lions' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
