Detroit Lions Expected To Call Up George Winn from Practice Squad

Several Detroit Lions reporters have confirmed a report by Mike Garafolo that the Detroit Lions are going to promote running back George Winn from the practice squad to the active roster.  The details of who will be moved off of the roster and by what method are not yet known.  This move though is a sign that Joique Bell will remain out of action this coming week against Buffalo due to suffering a concussion on Sunday.  Winn, who could have made the active roster had it not been for his fumble issues, was placed on the practice squad as insurance for Joique Bell.  Winn has a similar style to Bell as a straight ahead runner.  It is not likely that he will get many carries, but he will definitely play special teams.  The leak of this news before Saturday leads me to believe that the team will be keeping Winn on the active roster for more than just one week.
