  • AJ Parker: Works out for Seattle

    Parker worked out for the Seahawks on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Parker was let go by the 49ers in early September after he reached an injury settlement with the team following a hamstring injury, but he now appears ready to return to action. The cornerback played in three games with the Lions last season, recording 11 tackles.

  • AJ Parker: Done with 49ers

    San Francisco waived Parker (hamstring) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Tuesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

    A week after placing Parker on IR, the 49ers have decided to part ways with him. He's set to become a free agent and won't be eligible to sign elsewhere until he's healthy.

  • 49ers' AJ Parker: Headed to IR

    The 49ers placed Parker (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Parker was picked up by the 49ers in January after being cut by the Lions in November. He left Friday's preseason game against the Chargers and appeared to be favoring his right leg. Parker will now miss the 2023 season unless he reaches an injury settlement with the 49ers.

  • 49ers' AJ Parker: Ruled out

    Parker will not return to Friday's preseason game after suffering a hamstring injury, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Parker appeared to be favoring his right leg after suffering the hamstring injury, per Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News. The young cornerback was picked up by San Francisco this offseason after being waived by Detroit in 2022. He's on the fringe of making the 49ers' active roster ahead of the coming season, and this injury doesn't help his case. The extent of Parker's injury is currently unknown.

  • AJ Parker: Let go by Detroit

    The Lions waived Parker (hip) Friday.

    Parker was held out of last Sunday's win over the Packers with a hip injury, though he did not appear on Detroit's Week 10 injury report before being let go Friday. The 24-year-old cornerback logged 103 defensive snaps over the Lions' previous three games, recording 11 tackles over that span. Parker was previously waived as part of Detroit's final roster cuts in late August before re-signing with the team Oct. 8, and he could re-sign to the team's practice squad if he's unable to secure a roster spot elsewhere.

  • Lions' AJ Parker: Won't play Sunday

    Parker (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Packers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Parker will be sidelined for Week 9 due to a hip injury he picked up during the team's Week 8 loss to Miami. The second-year defensive back had seen a modest role over the past two games, but his absence shouldn't have a major impact on Detroit's secondary.

  • Lions' AJ Parker: Questionable to return Sunday

    Parker (hip) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Dolphins, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Parker sustained an apparent hip injury during Sunday's matchup against Miami and is considered questionable to return. The 24-year-old collected three tackles before his departure, but Will Harris, Jeff Okudah and Jerry Jacobs are slated to handle the bulk of the team's cornerback work for the remainder of the afternoon should Parker remain out.

  • AJ Parker: Waived by Detroit

    The Lions waived Parker on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Parker signed with the Lions as an undrafted free agent last offseason and made the team due to a litany of injuries in Detroit's secondary. He made the most of his opportunity by registering 50 tackles, seven pass defenses, one interception and one forced fumble across 13 appearances as a rookie. However, the undrafted cornerback now finds himself among a wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline.

  • Lions' AJ Parker: Highly successful rookie year

    Parker registered 50 tackles, seven pass breakups, one interception and one forced fumble over 13 games in 2021.

    After the previous regime whiffed on expensive nickel cornerback Justin Coleman, Detroit's new-look front office did well to upgrade the position and save money in the process last offseason. The key was acquiring Parker, who not only earned a significant role as an undrafted free agent over Nickell Robey-Coleman and Corn Elder, but also made a number of big plays. Along with fellow undrafted gem Jerry Jacobs, the Kansas State product is one of two young, cheap building blocks in the secondary that could help Detroit get out of the NFC North cellar in the coming years.
