Kennard comes off NFI list, plus other moves

- The Detroit Lions announced Wednesday that linebacker Devon Kennard has come off the Active/Non-Football Injury list.

Kennard, who is in his first season with the Lions, was put on the list at the start of training camp and would not tell reporters why he was put on the list following practice on Tuesday.

The USC alum is going into his fifth season had four sacks last season as a starter with the Giants and has 9½ sacks in his career.

The Lions also signed free agent cornerback Josh Okonye who was part of the Lions during this past offseason as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue.

Cornerback Amari Coleman was waived as a corresponding move.

On Tuesday, the Lions signed offensive tackle Jamar McGloster and released offensive tackle Adam Bisnowaty.

The moves were made Tuesday, the team's first day off during training camp.

San Francisco signed McGloster as an undrafted free agent earlier this year and released him when the 49ers reported for training camp last week. The 6-foot-6, 319-pound McGloster started 24 straight games at Syracuse and played in a total of 30 games.

Bisnowaty has one game of NFL experience, a start for the New York Giants last season.
