Lions Make Nine Roster Moves


The Detroit Lions announced that they’ve activated DB Mike Ford and RB Bo Scarbrough from injured reserve and released CB Chris Jones and G Kenny Wiggins.

The Lions also promoted TE Isaac Nauta to their active roster.

Detroit signed OL Beau Benzschawel and P Arryn Siposs to their practice squad and released RB Dalyn Dawkins and TE Matt Sokol from their practice squad.

Here’s the Lions updated practice squad:

  1. DB Jalen Elliott
  2. DE Frank Herron
  3. WR Tom Kennedy
  4. TE Isaac Nauta
  5. LB Anthony Pittman
  6. DB Bobby Price
  7. DT Kevin Strong
  8. DB Dee Virgin
  9. LS Steven Wirtel
  10. WR/RB Kerrith Whyte (Injured)
  11. LB Kareem Martin
  12. C Marcus Martin
  13. WR Victor Bolden
  14. DT Albert Huggins
  15. OT Dan Skipper
  16. OL Beau Benzschawel
  17. P Arryn Siposs

Scarbrough, 24, is a former seventh-round pick by the Cowboys out of Alabama in the 2018 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year, year, $2.5 million rookie contract but was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and signed to their practice squad. 

Scarbrough was cut loose from Dallas’ taxi squad after a month and joined the Jaguars’ practice squad soon after. The Seahawks claimed him from Jacksonville but was cut loose at the end of last year’s preseason. 

The Lions signed Scarbrough to their practice squad and he later earned a call up to the active roster.

In 2019, Scarbrough appeared in six games for the Lions and rushed 89 times for 377 yards (4.2 YPC) and one touchdown. He also caught one pass for five yards.
