On Sunday, the undefeated Detroit Lions will take on the undefeated Atlanta Falcons at what is sure to be an extremely loud Ford Field.
This morning, the Lions announced a couple of roster moves as they have signed defensive end Alex Barrett to the practice squad and have released defensive end Earl Okine from the practice squad.

Johnson, who played with the Lions in 2014, returns to the Motor City after playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015 and missing the 2016 season with a hip injury. During his 2014 campaign with the Lions, Johnson recorded six sacks while playing in all 16 games that season.
