Joe Namath and all those

Postby zhangzk » Thu Oct 11, 2018 3:57 am

Lions running back Ameer Abdullah is inactive for Detroit's game Monday night against the New York Jets.

The Jets are without safety Marcus Maye (foot) and wide receiver Jermaine Kearse (abdomen) Patriots Danny Shelton Jersey , both of whom had been doubtful. New York linebacker Josh Martin was ruled out previously because of a concussion.

Abdullah rushed for 552 yards last season, his third in the NFL, but Detroit tried to upgrade its backfield by adding LeGarrette Blount and rookie Kerryon Johnson.

The Lions' inactives for Monday night are: Abdullah, guard Joe Dahl, offensive lineman Andrew Donnal (knee), defensive end Romeo Okwara, wide receiver Brandon Powell, defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson and cornerback Dee Virgin.

Robinson started all 16 games last season.

The Jets' inactives are: Kearse, Martin Trey Hopkins Jersey , Maye, offensive lineman Ben Braden, guard Dakota Dozier, defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi, and cornerback Derrick Jones.

The New York Jets signed former Lions linebacker Brandon Copeland and re-signed defensive lineman Xavier Cooper on Monday.

Copeland missed last season after tearing a pectoral muscle during the preseason. He had 30 tackles and one forced fumble in 32 games the previous two seasons with the Lions.

The 26-year-old Copeland is expected to serve as a backup on defense and be a key part of the Jets’ special teams unit.

”Too many different levels of excitement to put into words,” Copeland told the Jets’ website. ”Coming off of injured reserve, having to sit every Sunday, Monday and Thursday and watching other people play, I’m first and foremost excited to get back to the game that I love.”

He signed with Baltimore as an undrafted free agent out of Penn in 2013 and spent time later that season on Tennessee’s practice squad. After signing with Orlando of the Arena Football League in 2015 Mason Crosby Jersey , Copeland impressed Detroit after participating in the NFL Veterans Combine. His grandfather, Roy Hilton, played for the Baltimore Colts against the Jets in the Super Bowl in 1969.

”He played defensive end against Joe Namath and all those guys,” Copeland said. ”I know he’s going to be very proud of his grandson and now my job is to continue to make him proud.”

Cooper was not tendered as a restricted free agent, but was brought back to serve as a rotational defensive lineman. He had 16 tackles and one sack in eight games, and his play increased when Muhammad Wilkerson was benched at the end of last season.

Cooper was a third-round pick by Cleveland out of Washington State in 2015. He has also spent time with San Francisco, and has 56 career tackles and three sacks.
