ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have released wide receiver Kevin Ogletree and signed cornerback Mohammed Seisay off the practice squad.

Ogletree caught 13 passes for 199 yards in 12 games for the Lions last season. He has not played this season.

Seisay's promotion comes with the Lions' secondary facing a tough challenge Sunday against Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay. Detroit defensive backs Bill Bentley and Nevin Lawson have gone down with season-ending injuries, and cornerback Cassius Vaughn will miss Sunday's game with an ankle injury.

Safety James Ihedigbo hasn't played yet — he's doubtful for Sunday with a neck problem.
