Lions Release RB George Winn From Practice Squad, Sign G Chase Farris

The Detroit Lions announced that they’ve waived RB George Winn from their practice squad on Friday and signed G Chase Farris to the unit.

The Lions’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. WR Jace Billingsley
  2. CB Alex Carter
  3. WR TJ Jones
  4. TE Brian Leonhardt
  5. QB Jake Rudock
  6. G Brandon Thomas
  7. DB Charles Washington
  8. G Chase Farris
  9. WR Isaac Fruechte
  10. LB Steve Longa

Winn, 25, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati back in 2013. He lasted just a few days with Houston before he was cut and later signed by the Patriots.

Since then, Winn has played for the Raiders, Steelers and Cowboys before the Lions signed him to a contract in July of 2014. The Lions brought him back on a one-year exclusive rights deal before cutting him loose last week.

Detroit later added Winn to their practice squad.

Last year, Winn was active for seven games and totaled four rushing attempts for just a single yard and no touchdowns.
