Lions Re-Sign TE Jerome Cunningham To PS, Place LB Garret Dooley On Injured List

The Detroit Lions announced Thursday that they’ve re-signed TE Jerome Cunningham to their practice squad and placed LB Garret Dooley (hand) on the practice squad injured list.

Here’s the Lions updated practice squad:

  1. CB Mike Ford
  2. WR Chris Lacy
  3. QB Jake Rudock
  4. DT John Atkins
  5. C Leo Koloamatangi
  6. G Jamil Demby
  7. CB Dee Virgin
  8. TE Hakeem Valles
  9. LB Garrett Dooley (Injured)
  10. DE Alex Barrett
  11. TE Jerome Cunningham

Cunningham, 27, originally signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Connecticut Stat back in 2014. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the 53-man roster that year, but was later added to the Giants practice squad.

Cunningham had a brief stint with the Jets before he was claimed off of waivers by the Titans. He returned to Tennessee on a future/reserve contract last year but was on and off of the Titans’ practice squad.

The Lions signed Cunningham to their practice squad a few weeks into the regular season and has been on and off of the unit ever since.

In 2015, Cunningham appeared nine games and recorded eight catches for 59 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
