Return to Motown in store
Allison was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.
Saturday's designation marks Allison's second stint with the Lions, though he technically never played a game with them after opting out of the 2020 season. With the Lions decimated at wide receiver with both Tyrell Williams (concussion) and Quintez Cephus (collarbone) on injured reserve, Allison already represents the most veteran pass catcher among a depth chart that includes likely starters Amon-Ra St. Brown and Kalif Raymond. It's possible the longtime Packers wide receiver could push KhaDarel Hodge for work as the No. 3 wideout this week against the Bengals.
