Detroit's Levy out against Packers; Lions sign Gooden

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Detroit linebacker DeAndre Levy will the Lions' game Sunday at Green Bay because of a quadriceps injury.

The Lions downgraded Levy, linebacker Antwione Williams (hamstring) and cornerback Adairius Barnes (ankle) to out. They also announced Saturday that they signed linebacker Zaviar Gooden to the active roster from the practice squad and waived wide receiver Aaron Dobson.

Gooden was signed to Detroit's practice squad this week. He played in 2013 and 2014 with the Tennessee Titans, appearing in 24 games and making three starts.

Levy also missed Detroit's loss to Tennessee last weekend.
