Description: The Lions have placed DT Corey Williams (knee) on injured reserve.
Insight: Williams went under the knife earlier this season and has missed six games. Nick Fairley, a 2011 first-rounder, has emerged with 35 tackles and 5.5 sacks this season so it's doubtful Williams will return to a prominent role with the Lions next year.

Description: John Niyo of the Detroit News reports, via Twitter, that the Lions have acquired Williams and a 2010 seventh-round pick from the Browns for 2010 fifth-round pick.
Insight: Williams passes his physical with Detroit, so the deal is now final. He and Kyle Vanden Bosch are now aboard to shore up the Lions' defensive line. (SportsBuff.com)
