Lions elevate practice squad OL Michael Niese for Week 14

USA Today

In need of someone who has played center for even one snap in their football life, the Detroit Lions elevated Michael Niese from the practice squad to the active roster for the Week 14 game against the Chicago Bears.

Niese is primarily a guard, but he did play some center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2023 preseason finale. That makes him the only player with any center experience to back up Graham Glasgow, who is filling in for an injured Frank Ragnow.

The other reserve offensive linemen on the 53-man roster, Kayode Awosika and Dan Skipper, are primarily tackles who can also play guard.
