The Lions announced Friday the signing of linebacker Anthony Pittman to the 53-man active roster.
Pittman fills the roster spot at linebacker since rookie Jahlani Tavai was placed on injured reserve earlier this week.
In addition, G Casey Tucker was signed to the practice squad.
Matt Schoch of the Detroit News wrote back in June that if Pittman was signed to the active roster in 2019, it would continue a streak dating back to 1934.
