Detroit signed Jackson off the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad and released running Paul Perkins on Wednesday.

Dallas drafted Jackson in the fifth round this year out of Miami.

Slay was limited on Wednesday in practice with a hamstring injury that kept him out of Detroit’s previous game, a win over the New York Giants.
