Detroit Lions Are Waiving Kicker For His Awful Sunday Performance

The Detroit Lions are saying goodbye to a kicker they just called up last weekend. 

The Lions called up kicker Dominik Eberle last weekend for their game vs. the Seahawks. He filled in for the injured Austin Seibert. 

Unfortunately, Eberle didn't take advantage of the opportunity. He missed two extra points in the team's 48-45 loss to the Seahawks. 

The Lions, as a result, are waiving Eberle this Tuesday afternoon. 

It's unclear if Seibert, meanwhile, can return this week from injury. If he can't the Lions will look to sign another kicker ahead of next weekend's game. 

Detroit is now 1-3 on the season following a tough loss to Seattle. However, it's clear that Dan Campbell has things going in the right direction. 

The Lions play the Patriots of New England on Sunday.
