Lions cut Campbell, putting him on practice squad

BY foxsports • November 23, 2010

The Detroit Lions have released linebacker Caleb Campbell and signed guard Donald Thomas.

Campbell says he will be re-signed to the practice squad on Wednesday.

He was on the active roster in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Campbell earned a spot on Detroit's practice squad this season, playing football for the first time since the 2007 Army-Navy game.

Detroit drafted Campbell in 2008 after the Army gave him its OK. But the Army later told Campbell he would be required to serve at least two years on active duty before he could apply to be released.

Thomas was among the Miami Dolphins' final cuts in September. Thomas was a starter for the Dolphins last season after they drafted him in the sixth round of the 2008 draft.
