Detroit Lions start 'tough' roster cuts, place OL Evan Boehm on injured reserve

The Detroit Lions made a pair of moves ahead of Tuesday's roster cut deadline, waiving-injured tight end Charlie Taumoepeau and placing offensive lineman Evan Boehm on injured reserve.

The Lions, who cut cornerback Alex Brown on Sunday, now have 87 players on their roster. They must be down to 85 by 4 p.m. Tuesday.

"That’s always tough," Lions coach Dan Campbell said. "We already had to make a couple of cut decisions. These guys are out here working their rear off and giving it everything that they have, you’re always mindful of that and appreciate that, but it is a hard business.
