Lions worked out free agent CB Roc Carmichael Wednesday.

Carmichael struggled throughout the preseason and was released by the Eagles during final cuts. He would provide veteran depth if signed. Rashean Mathis, Darius Slay, and Bill Bentley are Detroit's top-three corners.

Eagles released CB Roc Carmichael.

Carmichael was forced into two starts for the Eagles last season after getting scooped off the Texans' practice squad. He's a fringe NFL talent.

Roc Carmichael started Sunday's Week 10 game at Green Bay in place of Bradley Fletcher (pectorals).

Instead of shifting impressive yet undersized slot corner Brandon Boykin outside, they left him in his natural position and gave Carmichael a shot. It turned out to be a wise plan. Carmichael handled himself well and Boykin was able to contain Jordy Nelson in the slot. "I thought Roc did a really nice job," coach Chip Kelly said. "We've been really impressed with him. He's come along."

Eagles signed CB Roc Carmichael off the Texans practice squad.

A fourth-round pick in 2011, Carmichael missed his entire rookie year due to a shoulder injury and never recovered. He'll add depth to the Eagles secondary with Brandon Hughes (hamstring) on short-term IR and can help on special teams.

Texans waived CB Roc Carmichael.

A fourth-round pick in the 2011 draft, Carmichael never developed into an adequate cornerback. He was mostly competing for a job on special teams.

Texans DBs coach Vance Joseph says CB Roc Carmichael looked "a little slow" in OTAs after missing his entire rookie season with a shoulder injury.

"With Roc, what I’ve seen is a guy who’s missed football," Joseph said. "He’s missed a year of football, but you can see the physical tools. ... I’m expecting Roc to play better in camp." Joseph's comments don't exactly bode well for a fourth-round reach who was also injury prone in college. Even if Carmichael keeps his roster spot, he won't make an impact in Houston's secondary.

Texans placed CB Roc Carmichael on injured reserve, ending his season.

Also injury prone at Virginia Tech, Carmichael missed all of preseason and Week 1 with the lingering shoulder ailment. A reach as a fourth-round pick in April's draft, Carmichael will return to compete for a roster spot in 2011.

Texans rookie CB Roc Carmichael has missed the entire exhibition season with a shoulder injury.

The fourth-rounder out of Virginia Tech also missed the majority of training camp, so he's facing an uphill battle to make the final roster. His status for the preseason finale remains up in the air.

Texans selected Virginia Tech CB Roc Carmichael with the No. 127 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Carmichael has NFL-reedy speed, but is a bit undersized, and is expected to struggle in run support. However, he notched 10 combined interceptions over his final two seasons at Virginia Tech, and has excellent instincts. Carmichael could be an early contributor in new DC Wade Phillips' system.
