Lions' Brandon Copeland: Reverts back to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copeland (pectoral) was reverted back to the Lions' injured reserve Thursday after clearing waivers.

Copeland was ruled out for the season after tearing his pectoral muscle, and he'll now spend the 2017 on injured reserve as a result. Copeland served as a key special teams player for the Lions in 2016.

Lions' Brandon Copeland: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copeland will miss the 2017 season after tearing his pectorial muscle in Saturday's preseason opener versus the Colts, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

It is now a matter of time before Copeland lands on the team's injured reserve. He had played in all 16 games during each of his first two seasons with the Lions. Thurston Armbrister, Jalen Reeves-Maybin, and Steve Longa will now compete for increased snaps at outside linebacker.

Lions' Brandon Copeland: Pushing for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copeland appears to be pushing Antwione Williams for a starting spot at strongside linebacker, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports.

Copeland has apparently had an impressive training camp thus far while getting reps with the first-team defense. The Lions value him for his ability to play both inside and outside linebacker as well as defensive end -- in addition to his status as a core special-teams player -- so he seems like a pretty safe bet to make the final roster. While he's never drawn IDP appeal before, that could change if Copeland overtakes Williams for a starting job.
