Lions sign Kris Durham to active roster to replace injured Ryan Broyles

The Detroit Lions have activated wide receiver Kris Durham from the practice squad to replace the injured Ryan Broyles.

The Detroit Lions have signed wide receiver Kris Durham from their practice squad. The move came on Tuesday and was done to fill the void created by wide receiver Ryan Broyles' season-ending ACL injury. Broyles tore his right ACL on Sunday, and the Lions opted to fill his spot with somebody who already knows the system.

Durham originally joined the Lions back in September after the final round of roster cuts. He was added to the practice squad after being let go by the Seattle Seahawks. He went to Georgia and is "throwing buddies" with Matthew Stafford, so he already had ties to the Lions before joining the practice squad.

Right now, Durham is set to join Mike Thomas and Brian Robiskie in the rotation at wide receiver behind Calvin Johnson. It remains to be seen if the Lions will make another move to add depth to the position with Titus Young not being in the mix, and it also remains to be seen if the team will simply release Young at some point this week.

In any case, at least the Lions now have a few guys who will have the chance to step in and play on Sunday.
