Source: Lions sign George Winn from practice squad

The Detroit Lions have promoted running back George Winn from their practice squad, according to a league source.

Winn played collegiately at Cincinnati.

Winn has previous stints with the Houston Texans, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and the Oakland Raiders.

Joique Bell has a concussion, and this promotion obviously doesn't bode well for his status.
