- The Lions also confirmed that they’ve cut FB Michael Burton.
Should Chubb clear waivers on Wednesday, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list.
Chubb, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest back in May. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to the team’s practice squad.
Los Angeles elected to cut Chubb loose a few weeks into the regular season and he later signed on to the Lions’ practice squad. Chubb was cut loose to make room for Logan Thomas but was re-signed to the practice squad just a couple days later.
The Lions signed Chubb to a future/reserve contract this past January.
Chubb has yet to appear in an NFL game.
