In a confusing move, the Detroit Lions released defensive back Nate Ness today. He is almost assuredly headed back to the practice squad as he was in the locker room earlier today getting ready for practice. When the Lions eventually place Nevin Lawson on injured reserve, that will leave the Lions with two open roster spots. The question is whether the team adds two defensive backs or a kicker and a defensive back.
UPDATE: The team announced that Nate Ness was indeed re-signed to the practice squad.
