Smith sits; David signed

ALLEN PARK — Running back Kevin Smith, who injured his shoulder in Sunday’s loss to the Rams, did not practice today. However, wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who missed the last two games with a knee injury, did practice. Johnson was a game-time decision on Sunday and is expected to be back this Sunday at Seattle.

The Lions placed defensive back Demarcus Faggins, who was injured on Sunday, on the Injured Reserve list.

They signed veteran defensive back Jason David (Washington State) to take his spot on the roster.  David was the starting cornerback on the Super Bowl Championship Colts in 2006. He spent the last two seasons with the Saints and was waived in August.

Also Taurus Johnson was cut from the practice squad and wide receiver Eric Fowler (Grand Valley State) was added.
