RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-15

Jefferson (undisclosed) was a participant during the beginning of Detroit's offseason program Tuesday.

Jefferson finished the 2023 campaing on Lions' practice squad injured list after popping up with an undisclosed injury in late January. The nature of the 24-year-old's issue was never revealed, though he appears to have moved past the injury over the past months. Jefferson has not played since his 2021 rookie season, spending each of the past two campaigns on Detroit's practice squad.

Jefferson (undisclosed) signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions on Tuesday, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

Jefferson has spent the last two years on Detroit's practice squad and will receive another opportunity with the team next season. The Oregon State product last saw game action in 2021, where he suited up seven times, and totaled 74 yards on the ground on 15 carries and two touchdowns.

Dealing with injury

Jefferson (undisclosed) was placed on the Lions' practice squad injured list Wednesday.

Jefferson will not be allowed to practice with the team or be eligible to be elevated to the active roster over the next four weeks, which means the move will essentially end his season early.

The Lions signed Jefferson to the practice squad Tuesday.

Jefferson spent training camp with the Lions but was waived with an injury settlement on Sept. 6 due to an undisclosed injury. He had a workout with the Cardinals on Oct. 3 but did not end up signing with the team. The 2021 seventh-round pick will rejoin the Lions on their practice squad and will wait for an opportunity to be called up to the team's active roster this season.

Receives look from Arizona

Jefferson (undisclosed) had a workout with the Cardinals on Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Jefferson spent training camp with the Lions but ended up on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury. The Oregon State product reached an injury settlement with the team though, and is now healthy and looking for new opportunities. With Keaontay Ingram dealing with a neck injury, Arizona may be in the market for some extra depth at running back.

Reaches injury settlement

Jefferson (undisclosed) was waived by the Lions on Wednesday after reaching a settlement agreement, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Jefferson reverted to the Lions' injured reserve on Aug. 31 after going unclaimed off waivers. The injury settlement allows Jefferson to return for the 2023 season once he's healthy.

Reverts to IR

Jefferson (undisclosed) reverted to Detroit's injured reserve Wednesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Jefferson cleared waivers after being cut Tuesday, so barring an injury designation, he will now spend the rest of the 2023 season on IR. The exact nature of the 2021 seventh-round pick's injury remains undisclosed.

Waived with injury designation

Jefferson (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Lions on Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

The nature of Jefferson's injury is unclear at this time. Assuming he clears waivers, his next step will be reverting to the team's injured reserve. From there, he will be looking at a 2023 season on the sideline unless both he and the team can reach an injury settlement at some point.

Lands new deal with Detroit

The Lions signed Jefferson to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Jefferson will get another chance to carve out a spot with Detroit heading into the offseason. The 2021 seventh-round pick logged 15 carries for 74 yards and two touchdowns across seven games during his rookie season, though he spent the entirety of 2022 on the practice squad before being elevated for Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Packers. Jefferson never wound up taking the field against Green Bay, though his experience with the team was still enough to earn him a new deal heading into this offseason.
