The Detroit Lions have made a minor roster move today:
The Lions have released CB Dontrell Johnson and signed CB Ross Weaver. Weaver was with the team on the practice squad last year.

Not only was Weaver with the Lions as a member of the practice squad last year, he had been with the team as recently as four days ago. Weaver was released to make room for cornerback Drew Coleman.
Dontrell Johnson had been with the Lions since signing on June 22.
