Lions reinstate Mosley, take Van Noy off short-term IR

Allen Park, MI ( – The Detroit Lions placed defensive tackle
C.J. Mosley back on the active roster after he completed serving a club-issued
two-week suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.

The Lions sent Mosley home during their recent trip to London for an
undisclosed violation of team rules, which ESPN later reporting that the 10-
year veteran was caught with marijuana in his hotel room and had disabled a
smoke detector.

Mosley’s reinstatement was one of several roster moves the Lions made
following their bye week. In addition, Detroit activated rookie linebacker
Kyle Van Noy from injured reserve/designated to return and brought back
defensive tackle Andre Fluellen while releasing cornerback Danny Gorrer.

Van Noy, the Lions’ second-round pick of the 2014 draft, underwent surgery
just prior to the start of the season to repair a core muscle injury. Head
coach Jim Caldwell said Monday that the BYU product is expected to make his
NFL debut in Sunday’s game against Miami.

Fluellen, who played in 13 games with Detroit last year and has spent parts of
each of the previous six seasons as a member of the Lions, was re-signed with
defensive tackle Nick Fairley out indefinitely with a knee injury he sustained
in the team’s Oct. 26 win over Atlanta in London.
