2022 Detroit Lions practice squad, waiver wire tracker; updated 53-man roster


The Detroit Lions may have constructed their initial 53-man roster, but general manager Brad Holmes and coach Dan Campbell are far from done with their player maneuvering this week.

The Lions currently hold the second priority on the waiver wire, and Campbell indicated earlier this week that they do not plan to waste that opportunity.

“We’re looking,” Campbell said on Monday. “Anywhere we feel like we can upgrade since we’re two on the claim list, we’re looking. Brad, we were just discussing it up there, we’re looking anywhere.”

By Noon ET on Wednesday, the Lions—along with every other NFL team—must put in a claim for any of the players waived over the past few days. Once that deadline passes, teams will be notified if they were awarded any of those players and will have a few hours to make a corresponding move.

At that exact same deadline, teams will then be eligible to fill out their 16-player practice squad with any of the players who were not claimed or are otherwise free agents.

In other words, right around Noon ET, we can expect to start hearing about Lions waiver claims, the status of players the Lions waived, and signings to Detroit’s practice squad.

We’ll be following it all right here on this updating post.

While we wait for news to kick in, catch up on all the waiver wire and practice squad rules you need to know.
