Don’t call it a comeback.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, the Detroit Lions officially announced the signing of former South Dakota State Jackrabbit running back Zach Zenner.

Zenner was released from the Lions injured reserve on Sept. 12. Zenner will return to the Detroit Lions — the team he has played for the entirety of his four-year professional career.

In 28 career games, Zenner has rushed for 420 yards and five touchdowns.

In a corresponding move, the Lions waived running back Ameer Abdullah, who played collegiate football at Nebraska.

Zenner will presumably take over Abdullah’s fourth-string position behind LeGarrette Blount, Kerryon Johnson and Theo Riddick.

At 12 p.m., Nov. 11 the fourth-place Lions will take on fellow NFC North foe, the Chicago Bears. Zenner’s first game back with the Lions will be televised on FOX.
