Lions Add Conroy Black To Practice Squad

The Detroit Lions signed cornerback Conroy Black to their practice squad on Tuesday. To make space for Black, the Lions let go practice squad running back Stephfon Green.

Black is a 6'0" undrafted rookie from Utah who played in two preseason games with Oakland. The Lions worked out the rookie -- who possesses 4.38 40-yard dash speed -- as one of 30 players they brought in for observation before the 2012 draft.

Adding Black to the practice squad was the second defensive backfield-related roster move the Lions made Tuesday. Detroit released Kevin Barnes to pick up Jerome Murphy off waivers from the Saints earlier in the day.
