With Thursday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings still lingering, the Detroit Lions have made several roster moves in preparation for their upcoming game against the Baltimore Ravens.
On Monday, the Lions announced they have promoted both WR Bradley Marquez and S Rolan Milligan from the practice squad to the active roster and have signed WR Jace Billingsley and S Stefan McClure to the practice squad. In addition, G Joe Dahl, who is on Reserve/Injured, returned to practice.
From Detroit Lions:
Billingsley began the season on Detroit’s practice squad before appearing in two games with the club on the active roster. He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Lions in 2016 out of Eastern Oregon.
McClure comes to the Lions after most recently playing in seven games for the Washington Redskins this season. Prior to Washington, he spent time as a member of the Indianapolis Colts practice squad in 2016, where he originally entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent out of California.
