Lions cut TE Davis

Allen Park, MI ( – The Detroit Lions released tight end
Kellen Davis Tuesday following a month-long stint with the team.

Davis was signed by Detroit on Oct. 20 with the Lions dealing with injuries to
tight ends Brandon Pettigrew, Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria. The 29-year-old
journeyman saw action in three games, but did not record a catch.

The Lions filled the roster spot by promoting guard Rodney Austin to the
active roster from the practice squad.
