DETROIT (AP) – The Detroit Lions have put defensive tackle Sammie Hill on injured reserve because of a foot injury and signed defensive lineman Jimmy Saddler-McQueen off the practice squad.

The Lions play their season finale against Chicago on Sunday. Detroit was already down a key defensive lineman after Nick Fairley went down with a shoulder injury.

Hill, in his fourth year, started three games this season. He hasn’t been a regular starter for the Lions since 2009.
