Lions Activate WR Andy Jones From PUP List, Waive CB Cre’Von LeBlanc

The Detroit Lions announced Saturday that they’ve activated WR Andy Jones from the PUP list and waived CB Cre’Von LeBlanc.

Jones, 24, originally signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Jacksonville back in 2016. He spent his rookie season on the Cowboys’ practice squad and returned to Dallas on a futures contract the following year.

The Cowboys waived Jones coming out of the preseason last year and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Texans. He later joined the Lions before eventually being promoted to their active roster in December of last year.

Unfortunately, Jones was placed on the PUP list coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Jones has appeared in one game for the Texans but has yet to record a statistic.

LeBlanc, 24, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic back in 2016. He was among New England’s final roster cuts and was quickly claimed off waivers by the Bears.

After making Chicago’s active roster for the past two seasons, the Bears elected to cut LeBlanc as they trimmed down to the 53-man limit. The Lions signed him to their practice squad a couple of days later and eventually promoted him to their active roster last month.

In 2017, LeBlanc appeared in 15 games for the Bears and recorded 17 total tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, and three pass defenses.
