Ricardo Silva Signed To Practice Squad, Ross Weaver Released

After waiving safety Ricardo Silva on Monday to make room for newly signed cornerback Drayton Florence, the Detroit Lions have re-signed Silva to the practice squad, reports MLive's Justin Rogers. The team released former Michigan State cornerback Ross Weaver to make room for Silva. According to Rogers, Lions coach Jim Schwartz is a fan of Silva's work ethic:

"He's a very hard worker," coach Jim Schwartz said during the preseason. "He's always made plays when we put him on the field, but I think he's taken a big step in his just general knowledge of defense and special teams. He's improving."

The Lions had just signed Weaver, an undrafted rookie, to the practice squad Sept. 2.
