The Lions have promoted defensive tackle Christian Ringo from the practice squad. He takes Khyri Thornton‘s spot on the 53-player roster.
The Packers selected Ringo in the sixth round of the 2015 draft out of Louisiana Lafayette. He spent two seasons in Green Bay as a member of the practice squad and active roster.
The Bengals acquired Ringo off waivers from the Packers on September 6 before waiving him six days later. The Lions then signed Ringo to their practice squad.
He has made two tackles and a forced fumble in eight career games.
