Lions HC Matt Patricia said Monday that the team will place DE Trey Flowers on IR with an undisclosed injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Detroit expects to get Flowers back this season. We'll see about further details on this situation, but Flowers hasn't been a strong IDP contributor so far this season. He's OK to drop for a replacement in leagues of shallow-to-moderate depth. Flowers' absence will leave room for Romeo Okwara to continue playing starter snaps even with Everson Griffen becoming available off last week's trade.
Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Lions have told EDGE Trey Flowers they plan to release him on the 1st day of the new league year (March 16). Flowers played out 3 seasons of his 5-year deal with Detroit but missed 19 of 33 possible games over the past 2 campaigns. Releasing him clears about $10 million in cap space but leaves about $12.9 million in dead cap on the roll, according to Spotrac. We'll see where he lands ahead of his age-29 season.

Lions EDGE Trey Flowers (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He spent all week limited in practice after playing through a questionable tag last week. We'd bet he'll play, but we'll confirm his status Sunday.
