Lions Release Linebacker Zack Follett

Zack Follett had a promising young career with the Lions, until suffering a serious neck injury last season against the Giants.  Follett tried to make a comeback and get his career on track again, but his journey with the Lions has ended.  Follett was released due to lingering pain is his neck, despite the fact that he passed his physical.

It appears that while Follett’s neck may be healed, it just doesn’t feel right and that his risk for re-injury is too high.  The Lions front office did communicate that they felt it was too risky, but when they released him they did not do so with an injury waiver.  That leaves Follett open to try to continue his career with another team if he disagrees with their assessment.
