Christian Ringo was a surprise cut by the Green Bay Packers just before the start of the season after spending the first two years of his career there.

He was quickly signed off waivers by the Cincinnati Bengals, but then was waived a week later.

Two days later, he was signed to the Detroit Lions practice squad, and today, was promoted to the active 53 man roster.

In 8 career NFL game appearances, Ringo has 8 tackles and 1 forced fumble.
