Lions notes: Ifeanyi Momah, Joe Long, more

Lions notes looks at a couple of roster moves, some tidbits on Ndamukong Suh and much more.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
  • The Detroit Lions made a couple of roster moves earlier this week. First, on Tuesday, they signed wide receiver/tight end Ifeanyi Momah, who spent time on their practice squad earlier in the season, to a futures deal. A day later, on Wednesday, they signed former Wayne State offensive tackle Joe Long (the brother of Jake Long) to their practice squad.

  • On Tuesday, the Lions worked out defensive tackles Jermelle Cudjo and Ogemdi Nwagbuo. (This was before Ndamukong Suh's suspension was overturned.)

  • Suh is quite fortunate that his suspension was reduced to a fine considering this was the best excuse he apparently managed to come up with: It's worth noting, by the way, that Suh technically didn't win his appeal since he was still fined. He won the appeal in the sense that he's going to be able to play on Sunday, but in the NFL's eyes, he technically lost the appeal.

  • Suh unsurprisingly didn't have much to say during his Wednesday media session.
  • Matthew Stafford had the quote of the day on Wednesday:
  • He may have gotten benched during last week's game, but James Ihedigbo is going to start at safety this week.

  • Golden Tate better watch his back on Sunday.

  • This should be pretty cool:
  • The Dallas Cowboys put defensive tackle Henry Melton on injured reserve earlier this week.

  • The announcers for Sunday's Lions/Cowboys game are going to be Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Erin Andrews and Chris Myers will serve as the sideline reporters.

  • SB Nation's latest 2015 NFL mock draft has the Lions taking Wake Forest cornerback Kevin Johnson.

  • Blogging The Boys has a very interesting look at strength of schedule for 2015.
