Lions sign Fluellen, put Walker on IR

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have signed defensive tackle Andre Fluellen and put defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker on injured reserve.

Walker is out for the season because of a dislocated ankle and broken leg, and the Lions confirmed Wednesday they have signed Fluellen.

The 30-year-old Fluellen has played off and on for the Lions since they drafted him in the third round in 2008. He's played 75 games for Detroit, including eight last season.
