The Detroit Lions released running back Keiland Williams on Wednesday, to make room for cornerback Alphonso Smith, who they released back in August.

Williams, who played his high school football at Northside, and his college football at LSU, carried the football only twice this season, accumulating three yards.

The 26-year-old Williams came into the NFL in 2010, rushing for 261 yards and three touchdowns, on 65 carries, with the Washington Redskins, before moving to the Lions last year, where he rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns, on 58 carries.

The Lions were looking for help at cornerback after some recent injuries, including a shoulder injury suffered by for Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun Dwight “Bill” Bentley.
