Free agent RB Tyrell Sutton is participating in Lions rookie camp on a tryout basis.
Former Clemson S DeAndre McDaniel is another somewhat big name getting a look. Sutton was a productive running back at Northwestern and flashed in previous preseasons, but he's 26 now and on his last NFL legs. He's an extreme long shot to earn a job behind Reggie Bush, Mikel Leshoure, and Joique Bell. Fri, May 10, 2013 01:19:00 PM

Seahawks released or waived RB Tyrell Sutton, OG Deuce Lutui, OT Alex Barron, WR Phil Bates, CB Ron Parker, OT Edawn Coughman, and CB Donny Lisowski.

Seattle ate a $100,000 signing bonus to cut Lutui, who failed to excel in Tom Cable's zone scheme. He's much more of a man-to-man power blocker. Sutton, 25, gained 59 yards on seven preseason carries with three catches.

Seahawks signed RB Tyrell Sutton to a reserve/future contract.

Sutton spent the 2011 season out of football after being among Carolina's final cuts. Once well thought-of around the league, Sutton was considered a one-cut zone system runner coming out of Northwestern. He should have a chance to crack Seattle's 2012 roster as a No. 3 back/special teamer.

The 49ers are trying out former Panthers RB Tyrell Sutton.

Sutton had his tires kicked by the Bengals and that's likely what the Niners are doing here. The one-cut runner hasn't generated quite the interest we thought he would after being waived by the Panthers.

The Bengals are trying out free agent RB Tyrell Sutton Tuesday, a source tells Scout.com.

Sutton has flashed NFL-caliber talent during his stint with the Panthers. In fact, he almost certainly has more burst than Cedric Benson. But the stubborn Bengals are likely just kicking the tires here in case Benson or Bernard Scott go down. Also trying out for the Bengals Tuesday: RB James Davis, RB Shaun Draughn, DT Derek Landri, and NT Gabe Watson.

Panthers waived RB Tyrell Sutton.

Sutton appeared in just nine games last year, but made his presence known as a third-down back, notching 12 catches for 70 yards while rushing 13 times for 71 yards. With so many thin NFL backfields heading to Week 1, Sutton will be a hot waiver claim. A one-cut runner, he'd fit nicely in a zone-blocking scheme.

Panthers RB Tyrell Sutton (ankle) has resumed practicing on a limited basis this week.

Sutton missed his window of opportunity with the Week 9 ankle sprain. When healthy, he'll return to a backup role behind Jonathan Stewart and Mike Goodson.
Thu, Dec 2, 2010 01:34:00 PM

Panthers RB Tyrell Sutton (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 12.

It could've been Sutton -- not Mike Goodson -- generating sleeper hype in Weeks 10-11 if not for a Week 9 ankle sprain that was probably of the high variety. Sutton will miss a third straight contest. He has 10 touches this year.
Fri, Nov 26, 2010 03:24:00 PM

Panthers RB Tyrell Sutton (ankle) missed Wednesday's practice.

Sutton was carted off the field with the injury last Sunday, indicating a possible high ankle sprain or something more serious. He's not expected to be available against Tampa in Week 10, and is without a timetable for return.
Wed, Nov 10, 2010 02:56:00 PM

Panthers RB Tyrell Sutton was carted off the field with an ankle injury during the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Saints.

Sutton was getting extra reps with Jonathan Stewart (head) sidelined and DeAngelo Williams (foot) inactive. He did not return after picking up 41 yards on seven carries. Mike Goodson is handling all the running back reps.
Sun, Nov 7, 2010 02:52:00 PM

Panthers declared RB Tyrell Sutton, WR Armanti Edwards, OT Jeff Otah, C Chris Morris, DT Andre Neblett, LB Jamar Williams, CB C.J. Wilson and third QB Tony Pike inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Dwayne Jarrett is active again as Edwards takes a seat this week. He'll still play behind David Gettis and Brandon LaFell.
Sun, Oct 3, 2010 12:08:00 PM

The Panthers have no interest in trading RB Tyrell Sutton.

An unnamed NFC team reportedly asked about Sutton's availability recently, but the possibility was dismissed. The Panthers have the deepest corps of running backs in the league, as Sutton could be a second-stringer on some teams but is the No. 3 back in Carolina.
Tue, Sep 7, 2010 10:28:00 AM

Panthers RB Tyrell Sutton (shoulder) and WR/KR Trent Guy (hamstring) will not make the trip to Pittsburgh for the preseason finale.

The Panthers' return jobs are finally starting to clear up. Guy is likely practice squad bound, and Sutton's injury should leave Mike Goodson as the primary kickoff returner. Captain Munnerlyn is expected to handle punts again after rookie Armanti Edwards struggled early in preseason action.
Wed, Sep 1, 2010 12:59:00 PM

Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Tyrell Sutton (calf) are inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants, as expected.

Jonathan Stewart is in line for a ton of work and is a borderline RB1. The other Panthers inactives are WR Dwayne Jarrett, third QB Hunter Cantwell, OT Rob Petitti, DT Derek Landri, DE Hilee Taylor and CB C.J. Wilson.
Sun, Dec 27, 2009 11:38:00 AM

Panthers RB Tyrell Sutton (calf) is out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

It's a tough break for Sutton as he would have had an opening for a change-of-pace role this week thanks to DeAngelo Williams' ankle injury. Look for Mike Goodson to back up Jonathan Stewart Sunday.
