Lions re-sign Jimmy Saddler-McQueen to practice squad

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Jimmy Saddler-McQueen has been added back to the Detroit Lions practice squad, nearly a month after being released.

After another rash of injuries to the defensive line, the Detroit Lions decided to bring back a familiar face to its practice squad. On Wednesday, the Lions announced that they have signed Jimmy Saddler-McQueen to the practice squad, as the team needs depth at the position defensive tackle position.

Saddler-McQueen previously signed with the practice squad in October, but was released in November. As Dave Birkett notes in his tweet, the Lions need the depth at defensive tackle with Corey Williams on injured reserve, and Nick Fairley battling an injured shoulder. Fairley injured himself toward the end of Detroit's Week 14 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Detroit's decision to bring back Saddler-McQueen fills the void on the practice squad that the team made on Tuesday, when the Lions released Kendrick Adams from the practice squad.

Detroit has just three games left remaining in 2012. The Lions will take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15, before hosting both the Atlanta Falcons and Chicago Bears in Weeks 16 and 17.
