Some Lions roster notes:
- Detroit claimed offensive tackle Jamon Meredith off waivers on Tuesday. He was let go by the Bills on Monday after spending a year on their roster.
- Offensive guard Manny Ramirez was released to make room for Meredith. Ramirez started 12 games last year, but he hadn't played even once this season.
- Randy Phillips, who was released last week, was signed to the Lions' practice squad.
