Lions Make Change At Punter By Signing Ben Graham

As first reported by Adam Caplan, the Detroit Lions made a change at punter on Tuesday. They released Robert Malone, who filled in for the injured Ryan Donahue on Sunday in Chicago, and signed Ben Graham.

Graham is from Australia and has spent most of his career with the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals. This year, he only appeared in one game with the Cardinals, but now he is getting a chance to fill in for Donahue in Detroit. Donahue missed Wednesday's practice, so it's looking unlikely that he will play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

In other roster news, the Lions signed defensive end Ugo Chinasa to their practice squad. Defensive end Kyle Moore was signed off the Lions' practice squad by the Bills, so the Lions added Chinasa to fill the vacancy.

Chinasa is a rookie from Oklahoma State who spent training camp with the Carolina Panthers after signing as an undrafted free agent.
