Prior to their Divisional stage matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the Detroit Lions made announcements on roster decisions.

Both defensive tackle Tyson Alualu and fullback Jason Cabinda were promoted from the practice squad to the starting lineup. For the second week running, both players have received an upgrade and are eligible to participate on game day.

Julian Okwara was additionally added back to the practice squad.

This season, Cabinda has participated in five games, including last week’s Wild Card game versus Los Angeles. Cabinda was waived after spending a considerable amount of time on injured reserve and rejoining the active roster.

He rejoined the Lions on the practice squad after clearing waivers, and he has been promoted in each of the previous two games.

Alualu has been promoted for the fourth time in a row this week. The 14-year veteran has made three appearances prior, totaling five tackles.

Veteran Taylor Decker stated that as a result, the squad is seizing the chance to carry on its journey to the highest level of football success.

“I believe that the most important thing to remember in this situation is how we got here. Additionally, it simply involves putting in the effort and being ourselves as athletes every single day, according to Decker. “In the end, we are confident that our coaching staff will position us for success. We’ve worked hard to win the right to play this game at this point.

“We didn’t just happen to find ourselves in this predicament. We are therefore thrilled about the ability to simply keep playing and having the opportunity to work toward our objectives.”
