The Detroit Lions are once again gearing up to play in front of a national television audience tonight, as they welcome the Las Vegas Raiders to Ford Field in downtown Detroit for Monday Night Football. In anticipation of the game, the team has made a couple of roster moves.
A pair of roster moves has been announced
As per the official Lions X account, the team has officially signed running back Devine Ozigbo to the active roster from the practice squad. In addition, they have elevated offensive lineman Michael Niese to the active roster from the practice squad.
Ozigbo has had experience with several NFL teams during his career, making stops with the New Orleans Saints, Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, and Denver Broncos. He initially joined the Lions in August, was subsequently released, and later reacquired to the practice squad.
Additionally, Niese was signed to the Lions practice squad this past August after having spent time within the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chicago Bears.
