  • Packers' Corey Ballentine: Staying put in Green Bay

    The Packers re-signed Ballentine on Monday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

    Ballentine will return to Green Bay, where he spent time both on the active roster and practice squad this past year. Heading into the 2023 campaign, the 26-year-old could potentially find himself competing for a roster spot in what's become a crowded secondary. If he does make the team, the 2019 sixth-round pick will likely see most of his playing time on special teams, bringing value both in coverage and as a returner.

  • Corey Ballentine: Cut by Detroit

    The Lions waived Ballentine (hamstring) on Friday.

    Detroit activated Ballentine from injured reserve one day earlier, but the club deemed the reserve defensive back expendable when a spot on the 53-man roster was needed for quarterback Tim Boyle (thumb), who was activated from IR in anticipation of starting Sunday's game against the Browns. Before going on IR earlier this season, Ballentine appeared in three games and played exclusively on special teams as a kick returner and member of Detroit's coverage units.

  • Lions' Corey Ballentine: Back at practice

    The Lions have designated Ballentine (hamstring) for return from IR.

  • Lions' Corey Ballentine: Placed on IR

    The Lions moved Ballentine (hamstring) to injured reserve Friday.

    Ballentine (hamstring) missed the Lions' practice Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Ballentine injured his hamstring during Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Vikings and was forced to exit the game early. The cornerback was unable to practice Wednesday, which could mean Julian Okwara and Charles Harris are both in line for increased snaps Sunday against the Bengals.

  • Lions' Corey Ballentine: Questionable to return

    Ballentine (hamstring) is questionable to return Sunday against the Vikings.

    Ballentine picked up the injury in the second half, and there's no clarity on whether he'll return. If he can't go, Julian Okwara or Charles Harris might see increases in snap counts considering the likes of Jessie Lemonier (coach's decision) and Romeo Okwara (Achilles) are not active for this one.
