ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have signed defensive end Jacquies Smith and offensive tackle Bryce Harris.

Detroit also brought back quarterback Brad Kaaya off waivers from the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday. Kaaya was drafted by the Lions in the sixth round this year, but didn’t make their initial roster. He is back at least in part because Matthew Stafford has an injured right ankle and Jake Rudock was his only backup.

The Lions also released defensive ends Datone Jones, George Johnson and defensive tackle Caraun Reid.

Detroit does not play again until Oct. 29 when it hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers.
