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.
