The Detroit Lions made a change to their PUP list on Monday morning by activating center Leroy Harris. Harris was placed on the PUP list just as training camp began last Friday, meaning he couldn't practice. By being removed from the PUP list, he was able to make his practice debut with the Lions on Monday.
Harris, who suffered a partially torn ACL last season, spent the offseason recovering from the injury. That's why he was placed on the PUP list last week. It was a precautionary move more than anything, and the Lions decided on Monday that it was time for him to be activated.
Harris will now get into the mix for a spot on the team as a center and/or offensive guard. Dominic Raiola is expected to start at center, and several guys are in the mix to start at right guard. It's believed that Larry Warford will eventually win that starting job, so Harris will probably end up being a backup if he is able to make the 53-man roster.
With Harris being activated, only wide receiver Devin Thomas is now on the PUP list. Also, defensive end Ronnell Lewis remains on the NFI list.
