BREAKING: Detroit Lions sign tight end Hakeem Valles…again

On Saturday, prior to their Week 5 matchup against the Green Bay Packers, the Detroit Lions were in a bit of a roster bind so they decided to waive a tight end.

That tight end was Hakeem Valles, who was placed on waivers.

Now, according to the Lions, they signed Valles to the practice squad.

In three games this season, Valles has two receptions for 11 yards.

Detroit Lions’ Update: Former NFL team doctor analyzes Kerryon Johnson injury

On Sunday, the Detroit Lions used a plethora of Green Bay Packers mistakes on their way to a 31-23 win at Ford Field. Though the Lions escaped with a victory, there was a fear that they may have suffered a loss along the way.

With the Lions leading in the fourth quarter, rookie running back Kerryon Johnson scampered for a 24-yard run. Unfortunately, Johnson appeared to injure his right leg on the play and had to be evaluated on the sideline.

Though Johnson did not go to the locker room, he was not able to return to the game as veteran LeGarrette Blount shouldered most of the load for the rest of the way.

Following the game, Johnson said he would have been able to return to the game if needed.

Whether or not that is true, we will probably never know, but the Lions were not willing to take that chance.

On Sunday night, former NFL team doctor David J. Chao M.D. hosted a Periscope session where he discussed many of the injuries around the league. During the session, Chao gave his initial evaluation of Kerryon Johnson.
