Lions re-sign cornerback Alphonso Smith

DETROIT, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- Cornerback Alphonso Smith rejoined the injury-plagued Detroit Lions Thursday and the team released running back Keiland Williams.

Smith, who was among the team's final pre-season cuts, started 10-games for the Lions in 2010, leading Detroit corners with five interceptions and 27 tackles.

Detroit was weak at cornerback following a concussion suffered by Jacob Lacey and a shoulder injury to 2012 third-round draft pick Bill Bentley in Detroit's 26-23 overtime win over the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday.

Williams, a third year running back, rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns for the Lions in 2011, but had just two carries and two receptions this season.
