Also, TE Greg Olsen is considered a game-time decision for Sunday's season opener. An MRI on his sprained left knee Friday showed no structural damage. Olsen was injured when he was tackled during the team's preseason finale Thursday.

DETROIT - Passed physical: RB Kevin Jones. Reserve/injured: OG Frank Davis (knee). Contracts terminated: RB Aveion Cason; LB's Donte' Curry, Justin Kurpeikis; WR's Kevin Kasper, Cliff Russell; P Micah Knorr; G/T Barry Stokes. Placed on waivers: WR Ron Bellamy; CB's A.J.

Assigned on waivers: S Eric Frampton from Raiders. Reserve/injured: OT Clint Stickdorn. Placed on waivers: LB Johnny Baldwin.

Also, RB Kevin Jones is on the active roster and hopes to play before the sixth game -- but exactly when he gets back on the field is something even he can't predict. Jones, who suffered a broken bone in his foot late last season, said he is taking it "day by day." He missed the entire preseason and wasn't activated from the physically unable to perform list until last week. Tatum Bell will start the season opener, with T.J. Duckett serving as the primary backup until Jones is ready.

Assigned on waivers: TE Garrett Mills from Patriots. Placed on waivers: OG Brian Daniels.
