ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions have placed defensive end Jared DeVries on injured reserve, meaning he will miss a second consecutive season because of injury.

DeVries signed a one-year contract in April. He had been released in February after missing last season following surgery on a ruptured Achilles tendon.

He started 29 games the previous three seasons for the Lions and has played in 120 games for them since they drafted him out of Iowa in 1999.

The team on Friday also placed safety David Roach on the waived-injured list and signed defensive tackle Jaron Baston and safety John Wendling.
