Jon Kitna on IR

Jon Kitna was placed on Injured Reserve by the Detroit Lions.

Kitna was held out of the past week’s loss to the Vikings with back spasms.  This injury will likely be the end of Jon’s tenure in Detroit as this was his last year of his current contract.

This will end the speculation of whether or not the young QBs will get a chance to show what they can do.  Dan Orlovsky and Drew Stanton now have a chance to step up.

Dan Orlovsky is currently listed as the Detroit Lions starter.
