Lions Officially Consist of Zonovan Knight in Their 53-Man Roster

In Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, Detroit Lions operating back David Montgomery suffered a thigh injury. As a outcome, the group has decided to add an additional operating back to their 53-man roster. Agent Mike McCartney confirmed that his client Zonovan Knight will be signed from the team’s practice squad. Knight had previously joined the practice squad just after becoming released by the Jets for the duration of the summer time. Final season, Knight played in seven games and began 4 of them for the Jets. For the duration of that time, he recorded 85 carries for 300 yards and 1 touchdown, as nicely as 13 catches for one hundred yards.

Following the injury, Montgomery stated that he expects to be out for a couple of weeks. On the other hand, head coach Dan Campbell described his status as day-to-day for the duration of Monday’s press conference. Moreover, the Lions have initial-round choose Jahmyr Gibbs readily available in the backfield to offer assistance.
