2021 Roster Tracker: Lions Waive RB Craig Reynolds

Stay tuned to SI All Lions for all of the latest Detroit Lions roster news.

The latest Detroit Lions roster cut has been revealed. 

Running back Craig Reynolds, who impressed many with his performances in the preseason, has been waived by the Lions.

Reynolds was in competition with Jermar Jefferson, converted defensive back Godwin Igwebuike and undrafted rookie free agent Dedrick Mills to play behind D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams.

"He’s had an outstanding camp the two weeks he’s been here and he’s just picked up the offense right away," offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn said. "He kind of said last year he was out of football because of COVID and what not, so maybe he was overlooked. But I’m glad we found him. Our scouting department, they’ve done a heck of a job finding him."
