C. J. Mosley DL DET 7 months ago

Mosley was reinstated from his two-game team-imposed suspension Monday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Mosley was sent home and suspended for two weeks on Oct. 25 for violating teams rules while the Lions were in London for their Week 8 game against the Falcons. Now allowed to re-join his teammates following their bye week, Mosley should see extended playing time at defensive tackle, since Nick Fairley (knee) is expected to miss the next month or so.

Mosley has been suspended for two weeks for conduct detrimental and a violation of team rules, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The 10th-year defensive tackle was sent home from London and placed on the Reserve/Suspended List, creating an opening on the roster for Jerome Couplin. Even with the two-week suspension, Mosely still looks like a lock to set a new career high in sacks, as he's just 0.5 off of his mark of three set during his rookie year.

Lions agreed to terms with DT C.J. Mosley, formerly of the Jaguars, on a two-year contract.

Mosley signs just two days after being released by the Jaguars. Mosley overtook Terrance Knighton on the depth chart last season, but was viewed as a poor fit for new coach Gus Bradley's system. A pure run-stopper, Mosley should see somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 snaps behind starting DTs Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley.

Jaguars released DT C.J. Mosley.

The move frees up $2.475 million in salary, but saves less than $500,000 versus the salary cap. Mosley was cut because the new Jaguars regime isn't high on his scheme fit under Gus Bradley; he wasn't a salary cap casualty. Mosley, 29, racked up 45 tackles and 2.5 sacks last season, playing for Mel Tucker. Tucker is now the defensive coordinator in Chicago.

Jaguars DT C.J. Mosley has passed Terrance Knighton on the depth chart.

Knighton missed three months after a nightclub brawl left him needing eye surgery. Mosley used that chance to seize the starting job and he hasn't looked back. Look for Knighton to rotate in behind Tyson Alualu and Mosley.
