Jackson suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Packers and will now miss the Lions' playoff run. In four games with the team, the cornerback recorded seven tackles and one pass deflection. The Lions promoted Adairius Barnes from the practice squad to replace Jackson on the depth chart.
After placing cornerback Quandre Diggs on injured reserve, the Lions decided to bring Jackson in from the Ravens' practice squad to help bolster the secondary. The 27-year-old has yet to take the field this season.
Jackson was waived by the Ravens on Saturday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports.
Jackson was waived after the team added tight end Nick Boyle to their active roster, as he was returning from suspension. Jackson was waived by the team in the preseason, but was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster prior to Week 11. He presumably will end up back on the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Jackson was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.
Jackson has been on the Ravens' practice squad since mid-October, so the defensive back should have a good understanding of the defensive. However, the 26-year-old could make a more immediate impact on special teams as he has proven his return capabilities throughout the preseason.
