The Detroit Lions are on their bye week, and on Wednesday they announced they have decided to re-sign Maurice Alexander.

On Monday, the Lions announced they had waived WR Alexander.

In two games with the Lions this season, he has returned five kicks for 129 yards, including a long of 47 yards.

This move did not come as a huge surprise as a couple of the Lions wide receivers who are dealing with injuries, including Amon-Ra St. Brown and DJ Chark, will be healthy and there was not a need for a WR 6.
