April 27, 2020
The Lions cut Carson on Monday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Carson spent time with the Lions and Packers in 2019, even making a surprise start Week 8 and taking 12 carries for 34 yards. He then suffered a hamstring injury, which led to the Lions placing him on IR and then cutting him, only to re-sign him in January. The team is letting Carson go again after using second- and fifth-round draft picks on running backs D'Andre Swift and Jason Huntley.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Signed by the Bengals as an undrafted rookie this year, Tra Carson faces an uphill battle to make the roster, let alone make a fantasy impact. His best shot at the team will be as a practice squad member, and, if he somehow manages to make the 53-man roster, special teams will likely be the main reason.
