Help for the Lions’ injury-riddled secondary has arrived in the form of a familiar face.
The Lions have re-signed corner Brandon McDonald after releasing him Dec. 9 to make room on the roster for defensive tackle Jovan Haye.
The Lions released defensive end Keyunta Dawson to make room for McDonald.
Dawson was signed Nov. 30 and played in two games while the Lions were short-handed along their defensive front with injuries to Lawrence Jackson and Nick Fairley and Ndamukong Suh serving a two-game suspension.
McDonald brings depth to a secondary that’s been dealing with a number of injuries of late.
Safety Louis Delmas hasn’t played since Thanksgiving with a knee injury.
Starting corner Chris Houston had to remove himself from Sunday’s game in Oakland when the a knee injury prevented him from cutting and playing at a high level.
It was Houston’s first game back since spraining the knee on Thanksgiving.
Corner Aaron Berry missed Sunday’s game because of a separated right shoulder and is still favoring it a bit, even though he’s practiced this week.
Corner Don Carey hasn’t practiced all week after suffering a concussion against the Raiders.
McDonald played in 11 games with the Lions this season with 17 tackles and on pass defended.
