    Detroit Lions place linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton on IR; waive two others

    Allen Park — The Detroit Lions got down to the required 85-man roster limit on Tuesday afternoon, placing linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton on injured reserve and waiving defensive tackle Michael Barnett and wide receiver Chad Hansen. 

    Hansen, who has been sidelined the past week, received an injury settlement from the team. 

    It’s a tough break for Hamilton, a January waiver claim who had been talked about by coach Dan Campbell as early as March. A three-year veteran with 46 games of experience, Hamilton had been making a strong run at a roster spot prior to suffering an injury. 

    “I love Shaun Dion,” inside linebacker coach Mark DeLeone said this week. “I think, first of all, you’re talking about a guy who’s a real professional, knows how to play, has played at a high level in college, in the pros. The game’s not too big for him. He just comes out and always makes plays, whether it’s in practice. We get in the game and they’re running a zone over there to our left, and he strikes, sheds, gets off, and makes a tackle. I’m excited about him. This is a guy I like a lot.”
