Detroit Lions Waive Ameer Abdullah; Sign Zach Zenner

Ameer Abdullah was barely seeing the field this season as he was buried on the depth chart due to Kerryon Johnson, LeGarrette Blount, and Theo Riddick all playing ahead of him.

This season, Abdullah has been playing sparingly with the Lions as he was only suited up for three games this year. Abdullah will now be subjected to waivers where he could get looks from teams looking to add a special teamer and running back depth.

Taking his spot will be a familiar face with the Lions in Zach Zenner. Zenner, 27, dealt with injuries which lead to him being placed on I.R. but was recently released from I.R. and has now been brought back. Zenner will be used on special teams.

The Lions also signed former Texans receiver Bruce Ellington.
