Lions Sign RB Kerrith Whyte To Practice Squad, Release WR Victor Bolden

The Lions announced they have signed RB Kerrith Whyte to the practice squad and released WR Victor Bolden in a corresponding move. 

Detroit’s full practice squad now includes: 

  1. C Beau Benzschawel
  2. QB David Blough
  3. DB Jalen Elliott
  4. DE Frank Herron
  5. WR Tom Kennedy
  6. TE Isaac Nauta
  7. LB Anthony Pittman
  8. DB Bobby Price
  9. P Arryn Siposs
  10. DT Kevin Strong
  11. DB Dee Virgin
  12. G Kenny Wiggins
  13. RB Jonathan Williams
  14. LS Steven Wirtel
  15. DE Jonathan Wynn
  16. WR/RB Kerrith Whyte  

Whyte, 23, was selected in the seventh round out of Florida Atlantic by the Bears in 2019. He agreed to a four-year, $2.6 million contract and managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason.

However, Chicago elected to waive Whyte back in September and signed him to their practice squad once clearing waivers. The Steelers signed Whyte to their active roster later in the year. 

In 2019, Whyte appeared in six games for the Steelers and rushed 24 times for 122 yards (5.1 YPC) and caught one pass for nine yards.
