Clearing room for McBride
Defensive tackle Orien Harris was released on Wednesday clearing a spot on the 53-man roster. Harris did not play in Sundays loss at New Orleans.
The Lions are expected to claim defensive end Turk McBride off waivers. He was cut by Kansas City. McBride was drafted by the Chiefs in 2007 when Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham was with the Chiefs. The Lions wont announce a transaction until a player has passed his physical.
