NFL investigating another Lions player for gambling violations: report

The NFL is investigating a fifth Detroit Lions player as part of its ongoing gambling investigation, The Athletic reported Friday.

The website did not name the player but reported he did not have a prominent role in 2022.

Four Lions players, including wide receiver Jameson Williams, were suspended in April for violating the NFL’s policy on gambling.

Williams and receiver Stanley Berryhill were suspended six games for placing mobile bets on non-NFL games from a team facility, while receiver Quintez Cephus and safety C.J. Moore were suspended indefinitely for wagering on football. Washington Commanders defensive end Shaka Toney also was suspended indefinitely in the probe.
