I'ts official, O'Connell claimed
The Lions have confirmed that they claimed QB Kevin O'Connell who was waived by the New England Patiots on Monday. To make room on the roster they released WR Glenn Holt who had just joined the team on Friday.
With Daunte Culpepper questionable for Thursday's preseason game with eight stitches in his foot and Drew Stanton out following arthroscopic knee surgery, the Lions were down to two quarterbacks. Brooks Bollinger, who was signed today, practiced along with Matthew Stafford this morning.
