Detroit Lions Now Up to Six on Practice Squad


The Detroit Lions have assigned six players to their practice squad, the latest of which is former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Kris Durham. Two spots remain at the team’s disposal.

Durham, pictured above receiving a talk from former Lions draft pick Mike Williams, was a fourth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2011 and caught three passes as a rookie before being placed on injured reserve with a torn labrum that required surgery. He’s a big receiver at 6’6″ and 216 pounds and some have already suggested he could eventually supplant Kassim Osgood on the active roster.

Durham played his college ball at the University of Georgia and caught passes from Matthew Stafford from 2006 to 2008. The bulk of his collegiate production came in 2010 after Stafford had already moved on to the Detroit Lions.

The Lions now have two wide receivers on the practice squad, the other being Patrick Edwards.
