Khyri Thornton: Suspended 10 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton was suspended for 10 weeks by the NFL for an undisclosed reason, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Thornton was most recently waived by the Giants following their Week 14 loss to the Cowboys. It is unclear what he is being disciplined for, but his suspension will not begin until he is picked up by another squad.

Giants' Khyri Thornton: Signs with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants signed Thornton to a contract Wednesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Thornton assumes the roster spot of cornerback Janoris Jenkins (ankle), who was placed on injured reserve after undergoing season-ending surgery Wednesday. A third-round draft pick of the Lions in 2014, Thornton has appeared in 23 games with Detroit over parts of the last three seasons, producing 28 total tackles and one sack. He'll serve in a depth role along the defensive line in New York.

Lions' Khyri Thornton: Cut loose by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions waived Thornton on Tuesday, Michael Rothstein of reports.

The timing of Thornton's release is somewhat curious, given that he had practiced with the Lions on Tuesday and was fully expected to play Thursday against the Vikings. Evidently, the Lions felt the defensive tackle's roster spot would be put to better use by another player. Thornton appeared in four games for the Lions this season, logging four tackles and no sacks.

Lions' Khyri Thornton: Officially activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions officially activated Thorton (suspension) on Monday, Kyle Meinke of reports.

Thorton, fresh off serving a six-game suspension, is a welcomed addition to a defensive-tackle rotation that was thin on depth following the loss of Haloti Ngata (biceps). While he could be in store for a handful of reps right off the bat, Thornton is unlikely to warrant IDP consideration at any juncture the rest of the season.
