Thursday Notes: Lions Make a Few Roster Moves

  • Louis Delmas' interception return for a TD from the Cardinals game was officially changed to 101 yards.  It was recorded as only 100 yards originally, but the change to 101 was made yesterday.  Delmas' return was the longest by a rookie since 1926, and it was the third different way he scored points this season.  If you remember back to earlier this season, Delmas also scored a touchdown on a fumble return against New Orleans in the season opener and tackled Green Bay's Ryan Grant in his own end zone for a safety on Thanksgiving.  He is the only rookie in NFL history to accomplish that feat.
  • Delmas received his fifth fine of the season this week -- this time one costing him $5,000 for throwing the ball into the stands after he scored on the 101-yard return.
  • Don Muhlbach is healthy enough to play again, as the Lions released long snapper Nathan Hodel, who was on the roster to fill in for Muhlbach while he was out with an injury.  Filling Hodel's spot on the roster is wide receiver Eric Fowler, who was signed from the practice squad.  Wide receiver Michael Ray Garvin was signed to fill Fowler's spot on the practice squad.
  • Detroit Bad Boys and Motown String Music have merged to launch a new Pistons blog under the DBB name here on SB Nation.
