Lions waive rookie OL Tommy Kraemer

By Jeff Risdon

The roster ride for Lions rookie offensive lineman Tommy Kraemer has taken another turn. Kraemer was waived on Tuesday in a move that was processed in time to make the NFL’s official transaction wire.

Kraemer, an undrafted rookie from Notre Dame, was initially on the Lions’ practice squad after the final roster cutdowns. He was signed to the active roster late last week after tackle Taylor Decker was placed on injured reserve with his finger issue. Kraemer was inactive during the Week 1 matchup with the 49ers.

The Lions did not make a corollary move as of press time. Detroit currently has two open spots on the 53-man roster after waiving Kraemer and placing CB Jeff Okudah on injured reserve. Expect to see Kraemer back on the practice squad if he clears waivers on Wednesday.
