The Professional Indoor Football League named Columbus' LeRoy Vann as its Defensive Player of the Week for Week 5, which ended on Saturday.
Vann picked off two passes and returned both for touchdowns in the Lions' loss to Alabama.
Earlier this season, he returned a missed field goal for a touchdown.
The Lions released kicker Chandler Brooks, according to the team's Twitter account on Wednesday.
The Lions (1-2) have lost two straight and will play at Louisiana at 8 p.m. Saturday.
