DeJon Gomes DB DET 6 Months
Lions claimed S DeJon Gomes off waivers from the Redskins.
A run-support safety and special teamer, Gomes made eight starts the past two seasons in Washington, recording one interception and 75 tackles. He'll fight for reserve snaps in Detroit and try to chip in on kick and punt coverage.

Redskins SS DeJon Gomes suffered a partially torn MCL in his left knee during Sunday's win over the Eagles.
Gomes only has a Grade 2 sprain, so there's a chance he won't miss any time. He hasn't started since Week 3 of the regular season. The Redskins would likely turn to Jordan Pugh as their rotational safety if Gomes is ruled out.

Redskins S DeJon Gomes is expected to take over as the team's starting strong safety with Brandon Meriweather (knee) out for the season.
Gomes, in his second season out of Nebraska, started the first three games of the season with Meriweather out but was quickly replaced in the lineup by veteran Reed Doughty. Washington coaches are giving him a second chance, though. Pro Football Focus grades Gomes well below average against the run.
