ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions have released injured offensive tackle Greg Robinson.

The team made the move Friday, ending Robinson's short stay with the team and clearing a spot for Taylor Decker's potential return.

Detroit acquired Robinson in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams last summer after Decker had a shoulder injury. Robinson started the first six games of the season before having an ankle injury.


Decker may make his season debut for the Lions (4-4) against Cleveland (0-8) on Sunday at home.

The Lions will be without offensive guard T.J. Lang against the Browns because of a concussion. Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is doubtful to play because of a back injury that kept him out of practice this week.
