Lions sign Devin Moore to practice squad, release Troy Burrell

Brad White

Detroit bolstered its depth in the backfield on Tuesday.

The Detroit Lions signed running back Devin Moore to the practice squad and released wide receiver Troy Burrell, the team announced on Tuesday night. Moore has been in the NFL since 2009, when he was signed by the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming. He's bounced around the league from there, including stints with the Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts.

Moore has only appeared in four games in his career, all to start the season with the Colts in 2010. In those four games, he rushed twice for -2 yards, but returned 12 kicks for 257 yards.

Burrell was signed to Detroit's practice squad on Nov. 6 as an undrafted free agent from Wayne State. This is the second time that Burrell has been cut by the Lions -- the first was in June, when he was cut to make room for quarterback R.J. Archer. With the Lions trading for Mike Thomas at the deadline, wide receiver depth is less of an issue.
