Lions release veteran RB days after signing him

Originally on Detroit's practice squad, Ozigbo played in two games before being signed. 

Ozigbo was released, and the Lions added linebacker Trevor Nowaske to the 53-man roster. 

“I’ve still got a lot of work to do,” Nowaske told I know being undrafted is a fight from here. I'm glad I could help, but there's much more to do.”

Ozigbo's release may give the Lions' backfield more stability after Montgomery's Week 6 absence.

“We just trying to take it one day at a time,” Montgomery told the Detroit Free Press last week. We don't know, but we're trying to get me healthy again.

Montgomery may return after the week after Ozigbo's release.

Knight had three carries for 13 yards and one catch for 8 yards in two games. October 14 saw him placed on injured reserve.
