Lions CB Brandon McDonald Placed on IR

Detroit Lions cornerback Brandon McDonald will be placed on injured reserve, head coach Jim Schwartz announced on Monday.

"He'll be back next year. It's not a rehab other than a broken bone," said Schwartz, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Press-Press.

McDonald had tweeted earlier on Monday that he was undergoing surgery to repair his broken forearm.

A fifth-round pick out of Memphis by the Cleveland Browns in 2007, McDonald was waived by the Browns in September and claimed by the Arizona Cardinals. Active for just two of six games with the Cardinals, McDonald was waived again and claimed by the Lions.

In eight games with the Lions, McDonald started twice and posted 19 tackles and a pass defensed.

McDonald is scheduled to be a free agent after this season.
