The Detroit Lions officially filled out the final four spots on their practice squad on Wednesday. We already knew about five of the players earlier in the week, but only four names had been announced. The four players confirmed today to have joined the practice squad are tight end Cornelius Ingram, defensive end Kyle Moore, defensive tackle Corvey Irvin and cornerback Donovan Warren. The four players previously announced as joining the practice squad are wide receiver Nate Hughes, offensive tackle Casey Bender, center Dan Gerberry and safety Ricardo Silva.
Here's a rundown of information on the three new names on the practice squad:
- Ingram was drafted by the Eagles in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He tore his ACL in 2009 and spent about a month of 2010 on the Eagles practice squad. He was with the Eagles this year until the final round of roster cuts.
- Moore was a fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers in 2009. He appeared in eight games that year and started all seven of his appearances in 2010. He was let go during the final round of roster cuts as well.
- Warren is a former Michigan player who went undrafted in 2010 after deciding to leave school a year early. He spent training camp with the Jets last year and was with the Steelers this offseason before being let go this past weekend.
It's worth noting that cornerback Walter McFadden is not listed as being on the practice squad. Earlier in the week it was reported that he would be joining it.
