ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Lions have signed wide receiver Brandon Middleton and put tight end Dan Campbell on injured reserve.
The moves were announced Wednesday, a day after the Lions made them to replaced an injury-plagued player with one to return kickoffs.
Campbell's season is over because of a hamstring injury a year after an elbow injury limited him to just two games.
Middleton was among the final cuts Detroit made this year after having some success on special teams during the preseason. In five games last season with the Lions, he returned four kicks for 83 yards and had eight receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown.
Detroit (0-1) hosts the Green Bay Packers (1-0) on Sunday in its home opener.
