Carey was cut by the Lions on Friday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.
Carey has been a free agent for most of the 2018 season but signed with the Lions on Tuesday and was able to play in Thursday's game against the Bears. The 31-year-old apparently didn't show enough in that performance, though, as he was let go to make room for cornerback Marcus Cooper on the roster.
Carey was looking to earn a role providing depth in the secondary for the Jaguars before going down with a hamstring injury. He will spend the season on the sidelines unless he and the team ultimately reach an injury settlement.
Carey suffered a hamstring injury during Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings and did not return, and it looks like it is somewhat severe given that he's unable to practice. Until the Jaguars can provide an update on his health, consider Carey to be day-to-day.
Carey injured his hamstring during Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings and is considered doubtful to return.
The team didn't disclose the severity of the issue, so it's possible the doubtful designation reflects the fact that it's a preseason contest. Carey needs to get as much preseason time in as possible to work his way on to the 53-man roster radar, so a serious injury could be detrimental to his chances.
