Lions' Mitchell Loewen: Re-signs with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen re-signed with the Lions on Monday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Loewen was initially signed for depth by Detroit in late December, but he did not play a single snap with the team. The 25-year-old will remain with the Lions heading into the offseason and will work to carve out a reserve role along the defensive line.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen didn't see the field during Detroit's season finale against Green Bay.

Loewen was signed for depth at a time Detroit was in need of it along the defensive line, but he never took the field. The three-year vet will be a restricted free agent at the end of the league year.

Lions' Mitchell Loewen: Lands in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen signed a contract with the Lions on Friday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Loewen was waived by the Saints on Dec. 27, and finds a home in Detroit just one day later. His spot on the 53-man roster comes following the placement of A'Shawn Robinson (knee) on injured reserve. Expect Loewen to serve a depth role during Sunday's season-finale tilt against the Packers.

Mitchell Loewen: Waived by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen was waived by the Saints on Thursday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Loewen only suited up in Week 2 for the Saints and did not log a defensive statistic. The 25-year-old will search for a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen (neck) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams.

Loewen hasn't seen any action since Week 2, but he could be active for the Week 9 matchup with the Saints down a defensive end in Marcus Davenport (toe). Even if Loewen suits up, he likely wouldn't be in line for many snaps as the clear No. 4 end in the rotation behind Cameron Jordan, Alex Okafor and Trey Hendrickson.

Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen (neck) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Loewen is nursing a neck injury and he remains without a timeline for his recovery. The depth defensive end's absence is unlikely to affect New Orleans' defense, but it could cause additional special teams snaps to be made available.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen (undisclosed) logged 34 total snaps in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Loewen missed a few days of practice due to an undisclosed injury, but the minor issue didn't keep him from playing 23 defensive snaps Friday. He'll continue to battle for a reserve spot at defensive end.

Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Nursing minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen is expected to miss a few days of practice while nursing a minor undisclosed injury, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Loewen sustained the injury in Thursday's preseason-opening victory over the Jaguars. The issue does not sound serious, so expect him to return as soon as possible in order to continue competing for a depth role on the Saints' defensive line.

Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Rebounds from ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen (ankle) has returned to full health after undergoing surgery earlier this season, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

Loewen is healthy and able to run again after suffering a high-ankle sprain in the Saints' Week 2 loss to New England. The converted linebacker who went undrafted out of Arkansas looks to persevere through a plethora of injuries (including a Lisfranc injury in his final collegiate game) which has kept him from making a significant impact on the Saints' defensive line. Loewen failed to record a tackle in two regular season appearances in 2017, although he did record 1.5 sacks during the preseason.

Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen was placed on injured reserve Wednesday due to a high-ankle sprain, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Loewen suffered the injury during Sunday's loss to the Patriots. The Saints signed defensive tackle David Parry from the practice squad to take Loewen's place on the 53-man roster.

Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

Loewen had recently been sidelined with a minor, undisclosed injury. The 24-year-old is competing for a spot providing depth at defensive end on the final roster, so his participation at practice will be imperative.

Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Spends season on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loewen spent the 2016 season on injured reserve due to a foot injury, Evan Woodbury of reports.

Loewen signed with Saints in May as an undrafted free agent, but was spotted wearing a walking boot on his foot later that month. Ultimately, he was waived, placed on the non-football injury list, and wound up on injured reserve. Loewen will look to secure a 53-man roster spot during the 2017 preaseason.
