On Thursday morning, the Detroit Lions announced they have re-signed offensive lineman Tommy Kraemer to the practice squad and released defensive back Daryl Worley in a corresponding move.
Kraemer, a UDFA rookie out of Notre Dame, was signed to the active roster last week after reserve guard Logan Stenberg landed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury. Kraemer was active for last Sunday’s game versus the Eagles and got on the field for the final four snaps of the game—even recovering a David Blough fumble after a sack.
On Tuesday, the Lions activated offensive tackle Taylor Decker from injured reserve and waived Kraemer from the active roster. Kraemer passed through waivers and the Lions wasted no time bringing him back into the fold.
Kraemer has been signed to the active roster twice this season (also in Week 1) and the staff thinks highly enough of him that it wouldn't be surprising if he is signed to the active roster again before the season is over.
Worley spent several weeks on the Lions' active roster, but when he was asked to replace AJ Parker in the slot against the Rams in Week 7, he struggled and was exposed in coverage. The Lions released him after that game, and while they brought him back to the practice squad, he only lasted a week before being released today.
