Lions Sign Tim Toone To Practice Squad, Release Donovan Warren

The Detroit Lions made a change to their practice squad today. They released former Michigan cornerback Donovan Warren and signed wide receiver Tim Toone.

Toone was released by the Lions during the final round of NFL roster cuts. I figured he would be added to the practice squad shortly after he was released, but the Lions went in a different direction by keeping wide receiver Nate Hughes and signing a bunch of players released by other teams. Toone is back now, though.

Warren was one of the players brought in from another team. He was released by the Steelers during the final round of roster cuts after reportedly having a pretty strong training camp, and he is now once again a free agent.

The eight players currently on the Lions practice squad are WR Nate Hughes, WR Tim Toone, TE Nathan Overbay, OT Casey Bender, C Dan Gerberry, DE Kyle Moore, DT Corvey Irvin and S Ricardo Silva.
