Jake Nordin, a former Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City football star, cleared waivers Tuesday and was placed on the injured reserve list by the Detroit Lions.

The Lions waived Nordin, a fullback, Monday after he suffered a torn labrum in his shoulder while diving to make a tackle on special teams Saturday against the Cleveland Browns. He will undergo surgery soon and is out for the season.

Nordin had to be on waivers for 24 hours, according to NFL rules, but no team claimed him and the Lions retained his rights.
