Washington (undisclosed) has been activated from the NFI list, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Washington's injury must've been relatively minor, as he'll come off the list just a day after being put on it. He'll be immediately eligible to return to practice and could fight for a significant role right out of the gates with Armonty Bryant suspended for the first four games of the season. Washington is coming off a 2016 campaign with the Bears where he had 20 tackles and two sacks across 15 games.
Washington (undisclosed) was placed on the non-football injury list Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
With Armonty Bryant already suspended for the first four games of the season, there will be a chance for the likes of Brandon Copeland or Jeremiah Ledbetter to leave an impression on the coaching staff while Washington is sidelined. Washington was signed by the Lions this offseason after spending his first four seasons with the Bears. Athletically, Washington is a supremely gifted player, but he has yet to translate those skills into on-field production to this point in his career.
