Culpepper set to sign with Lions


DETROIT - Veteran quarterback Daunte Culpepper reportedly has agreed to a two-year contract with the Detroit Lions.

Team spokesman Bill Keenist says the Lions have no comment on yesterday's ESPN.com report.

The report, which didn't cite a source, indicated Culpepper would sign the deal tomorrow.

An e-mail seeking comment was sent to Culpepper, who acts as his own agent.

Culpepper, 33, worked out for Detroit on Tuesday, taking a step toward returning to the NFL after announcing plans to retire in September because he was frustrated over not finding work.

He was a three-time Pro Bowler for the Minnesota Vikings, but a knee injury limited his effectiveness with the Miami Dolphins in 2006 and Oakland Raiders in 2007.

CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Browns have placed offensive lineman Ryan Tucker on injured reserve for the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

The injury kept Tucker out of the previous two games. He missed the first four games of the season because of a hip injury and only started in one game this season - the Browns' Oct. 13 win against the New York Giants.

Tucker's knee will be examined by a doctor next week.

The Browns also signed wide receiver Steve Sanders to the active roster yesterday.

Sanders, a Cleveland native, played in the team's first four games, including his NFL debut in the season opener on Sept. 7 against Dallas. He had one reception for 18 yards in the game.
