Lions elevate OL Dan Skipper and S Brandon Joseph from the practice squad

USA Today

The Detroit Lions have brought up some reinforcements for Sunday’s matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. Faced with several injuries across the roster, the Lions elevated some help from the practice squad.

Detroit promoted offensive lineman Dan Skipper and safety Brandon Joseph from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday. It’s the first elevation of the year for both players.


Skipper, who re-signed with the Lions practice squad this week, will help bolster the offensive line depth. Left tackle Taylor Decker and RG Halapoulivaati Vaitai are ruled out for the game in Ford Field.

Joseph, an undrafted rookie from Notre Dame, will make his NFL debut on the active roster. Starters C.J. Gardner-Johnson (on I.R.) and Kerby Joseph (inactive with a hip issue) are out at safety.
