Funk signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions on Tuesday, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

Funk signed with Deteoit's practice squad last Wednesday and will now have an opportunity to stay with the team next season. The 26-year-old was most recently a member of Baltimore's practice squad before he was cut loose earlier this month when the Ravens added Dalvin Cook.

Gets look from Detroit

Funk signed with the Lions' practice squad Wednesday.

Funk was last in the Ravens' organization but was cut loose when they added Dalvin Cook on January 10. The Maryland product originally joined the NFL as a seventh-round selection of the Rams in 2021 and has also spent time with the Colts. In a corresponding move, Detroit placed Jermar Jefferson on the practice squad injured list.

Gets let go

Funk was cut from the Ravens' practice squad Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Funk was added to Baltimore's practice squad Dec. 19, when Keaton Mitchell was placed on injured reserve after suffering a ruptured ACL. However, after the addition of fellow running back Dalvin Cook, the Maryland product was chosen as the odd man out, and his time with the Ravens will come to an end.

The Ravens signed Funk to their practice squad Tuesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

With rookie Keaton Mitchell now out for the rest of the season with a ruptured ACL, Baltimore felt it necessary to add some depth at running back ahead of Week 16. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill are currently the only healthy halfbacks on the Ravens' active roster, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Funk get elevated from the practice squad as soon as Monday.

Cut from practice squad

The Dolphins cut Funk from the practice squad Saturday.

Funk spent a little over a month in Miami after he was cut by the Colts earlier in the season. The former seventh-round pick of the Rams is no longer needed with the Dolphins' backfield returning to full health. Funk has four career carries for 15 yards.

Miami is signing Funk to the practice squad Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Funk, who was cut by the Colts on Saturday and cleared waivers Monday, now gets a chance to operate as an emergency reserve option for a Dolphins squad that may be without rookie sensation De'Von Achane (knee) for multiple weeks. He scored through the air while handling three total touches Week 1, but contributed exclusively on special teams from Weeks 2 to 4.

Let go by Colts

Funk was waived by the Colts on Saturday.

The big news in the NFL on Saturday was Indianapolis signing Jonathan Taylor (ankle) to an extension and activating him from the reserve/PUP list, which necessitated a corresponding move to open a roster spot. Funk was the player the Colts chose to part ways with after the four-year vet was limited to special-teams work each of the past three weeks. Funk did get 12 offensive snaps against Jacksonville in Week 1, and he rushed twice for 10 yards while making one reception for 12 yards. He could end up on Indianapolis' practice squad if he clears waivers.

Limited to special teams

Funk did not have a carry or target in Sunday's win at Houston. He didn't play a snap on offense and was limited to five snaps on special teams.

Funk had two carries and a reception in Week 1, but he moved to a deep reserve role with the return of Zack Moss from a broken arm. Funk may permanently move to the practice squad if Jonathan Taylor returns from the PUP list in Week 5.

Joins 53-man roster

Indianapolis signed Funk to its active roster Tuesday ahead of Sunday's game at Houston.

The move comes in correspondence with placing fifth-round rookie Evan Hull (knee) on the injured reserve list. Presumed starter Zack Moss is dealing with a forearm injury, and change-of-pace man Deon Jackson has demonstrated a tendency to fumble the ball away, so Funk could very well be involved as early as Week 2.
