Sam Ficken: Joins Detroit's practice squad

Ficken has landed on the Lions' practice squad.

Analysis: Ficken started the season in Tennessee, but subseqently landed on their injured reserve with a groin injury. Both parties eventually reached an injury settlement and he was waived from IR. He tried out with Jacksonville prior to landing in Detroit, so his groin issue is seemingly behind him. He will now look to make an impression on the practice squad while waiting for an opportunity to get called up.
