Lions make changes to practice squad during bye week

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Lions have made a few changes to their practice squad this week, including the addition of two players.

The Detroit Lions have made a few moves to shake up their practice squad roster going into Week 5. The team has signed cornerback Lionel Smith and defensive tackle Jimmy Saddler-McQueen, plus it has released defensive tackle Lorenzo Washington.

Saddler-McQueen, 25, has bounced around the league since going undrafted out of Texas A&M Kingsville, officially appearing in just one game, back in 2010 with the Dallas Cowboys. Smith is an undrafted rookie out of Texas A&M who was initially recruited as a quarterback out of high school.

Smith will likely take the place of defensive back Ricardo Silva on Detroit's practice squad roster, as the Lions called up Silva to their regular roster recently. Silva already appeared in one game with the Lions, recording five tackles and one pass defended.

Washington, an undrafted 25-year-old out of Alabama, has never appeared in an NFL game before, bouncing around on a variety of practice squad rosters.
