This coming weekend, the Detroit Lions will be in Minnesota to take on the Vikings in Week 5 of the 2021 regular season.
In advance of their Week 5 matchup, the Lions have reportedly protected four practice squad players, including QB Steven Montez.
- Steven Montez, QB
- Bruce Hector, DL
- Jalen Elliott, S
- Ryan Santoso, K
Santoso could be elevated to the active roster if kicker Austin Seibert remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list for another week.
This is the second straight week the Lions have protected these four players.
