Lions cut Anderson, Johnson after adding Perkins, Driskel

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have released running back C.J. Anderson, quickly cutting ties with a player who helped the Los Angeles Rams reach the Super Bowl.

Detroit made the relatively surprising move Tuesday night after adding running back Paul Perkins off waivers from the New York Giants.

Anderson ran for 43 yards on 16 carries in two games, backing up Kerryon Johnson. He has 3,497 yards rushing and 22 touchdowns in his career in Denver, Carolina, Los Angeles and Detroit.
