Lions cut kicker Dominik Eberle after two missed extra points

Mike Florio doesn't understand how Cameron Brate was able to return to the field on Sunday following a head injury, and he believes the NFL needs to do a much better job at protecting its players.

Lions kicker Dominik Eberle’s first game in Detroit was also his last.

Eberle, called up for the Lions against the Seahawks on Sunday to fill in for the injured kicker Austin Seibert, was waived today.

That’s no surprise, as Eberle missed two extra points. It’s unclear at this point whether Seibert will be ready to return this week, or if the Lions will sign another kicker.

Eberle also played one game for the Texans last year, his only previous regular-season action.
