The Lions have signed wide receiver/returner Jeremy Ross from their practice squad, Tim Twentyman of reported Saturday.

To make room for Ross, the Lions released tight end Dorin Dickerson, whom they signed earlier this week.

Ross, 25, appeared in three games for the Packers earlier this season. He is most known for his kick-returning ability and could handle punts and kickoffs if needed.

The Lions appear likely to have six wide receivers available on Sunday at Cleveland. Calvin Johnson (knee) is probable. Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles, Kevin Ogletree, Micheal Spurlock and Ross are the Lions’ other healthy wideouts. Nate Burleson (forearm) remains out.
