The Detroit Lions announced on Tuesday that they had released defensive end Kendrick Adams from their practice squad. No follow-up move was announced until Wednesday, when the team shared the news that it had re-signed defensive tackle Jimmy Saddler-McQueen.

Saddler-McQueen originally joined the Lions practice squad back in October. He was let go back on Nov. 20 to make room for Justin Boren. As noted by Dave Birkett, the Lions' depth at defensive tackle isn't great with Corey Williams on IR and Nick Fairley banged up, so the Lions opted to bring Saddler-McQueen back to the practice squad as an insurance policy more than anything.

Adams joined the Lions practice squad toward the end of October. With him being released to make room for Saddler-McQueen, the practice squad now is as follows:

RB Devin Moore
FB Shaun Chapas
WR Troy Burrell
OG Rodney Austin
OG Justin Boren
DT Jimmy Saddler-McQueen
LB Carmen Messina
CB Conroy Black

Practice squad IR:

WR Patrick Edwards
CB Lionel Smith
