Detroit Lions trade for San Francisco 49ers’ linebacker

ALLEN PARK (AP) — The Detroit Lions bolstered their depth at linebacker by acquiring Eli Harold in a trade with San Francisco on Thursday.

Detroit gave the 49ers a draft pick, which was not disclosed, in exchange for Harold. The Lions made room for him by waiving defensive lineman JoJo Wicker.

Detroit lost Steve Longa, a backup linebacker and key player on special teams, last week with a season-ending knee injury.
