News: The Lions cleared roster space for recently added defensive back Drayton Florence by releasing fellow defensive back Ricardo Silva on Monday, according to The Sports Xchange. Silva suffered stingers during Detroit's final preseason game.
Analysis: Silva spent most of the 2011 season on the Lions' practice squad and finished with only three tackles. The 24-year-old doesn't have much professional experience and will look to latch on with another team. However, he should not be on rosters in any Fantasy formats for now.
News: Detroit promoted DB Ricardo Silva to the active roster on Tuesday to help bolster its injury-depleted secondary. Silva has spent the entire season on the Lions' practice squad.
Analysis: Silva was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Hampton and is unlikely to have an immediate impact. Fantasy owners should continue to leave him untouched in all formats.
