The Detroit Lions announced Wednesday that they’ve signed RB Javon Leake and waived RB Michael Warren with an injury designation. 

Leake, 23, signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland following the draft in 2020. He was waived coming out of camp and later signed to Washington’s practice squad. 

Washington brought Leake back on a futures contract this past January only to release him in April.
