Lacey placed on IR, Lions sign Bartell

Jacob Lacey's season is over as he's been diagnosed with a subluxation of his knee that will keep him out of the final two games of the year.

Lacey was injured during the Cardinals opening drive of Sunday's game as he made a tackle.  Previously this season, Lacey missed time with a concussion.

The Lions signed Detroit native Ron Bartell to take Lacey's spot on the roster.  Bartell, who attended Renaissance High School and Central Michigan, has played with the Oakland Raiders and St. Louis Rams in the NFL.

The Lions host Atlanta Saturday night, a game which will air live on WXYZ.  We will also air a 90-minute edition of the Ford Lions Report Live starting at 7pm.
