The Lions waived Marquez on Tuesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Analysis: Marquez suited up for Monday's season opener against the Jets and played 15 total snaps, including seven on offense. He didn't record a catch. The Lions brought in reserve lineman Jamil Demby to fill Marquez' void on the roster.
Marquez has secured a spot on the Lions' 53-man roster, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media Group reports.
Analysis: Marquez finished the preseason as Pro Football Focus' top-graded player on special teams and is likely sticking around in Detroit for very similar reasons.
Marquez (leg) played nine special-teams snaps during Friday's preseason game against the Giants.
Analysis: Marquez was dealing with a leg injury in training camp, but his participation in Friday's exhibition suggests the receiver has put the issue behind him. Marquez currently seems like a longshot to make the Lions' final roster given the crowded nature of the team's receiving corps, though he still has two more preseason games to make a name for himself on special teams.
