Prior to the transaction announced on Wednesday morning, the Detroit Lions had two vacant roster positions available, ahead of their Week 8 matchup with the Eagles.
On Wednesday morning, it was announced by the team that one of their vacant roster positions had been filled, as guard Tommy Kraemer was promoted to the 53-man active roster.
Earlier this week, lineman Logan Stenberg, who has seen only limited reps this season, was placed on injured reserve.
With the addition of Kraemer, the Lions have eight active linemen on the current roster.
In addition, Detroit re-signed cornerback Daryl Worley to the practice squad, one day after releasing him. Offensive tackle Darrin Paulo has also been brought back to the practice-squad roster.
Detroit could end up activating one of three players who are currently on the injured reserve list to fill the vacancy that remains: Taylor Decker, Da'Shawn Hand or Kevin Strong.
