ALLEN PARK — It’s been a rough week for the Detroit Lions and their offensive line, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to hear they hosted an offensive lineman on a free-agent visit.
The Lions hosted former Jaguars offensive lineman K.C. McDermott, per Thursday’s transaction wire. McDermott saw sporadic action at right guard through the previous three seasons. However, the 26-year-old logged reps all over the line through the most recent preseason. He played 73 snaps at right tackle, 41 at center and 12 at left guard over the past month in Jacksonville.
Detroit lost starting right guard Halapoulivaati Vaitai (back) to injured reserve to open the week. And if that weren’t enough, Pro Bowl center Frank Ragnow (groin) missed Thursday’s practice, while reserve guard Tommy Kraemer (back) hasn’t participated this week. The Lions have toyed with moving some of their pieces around, so kicking the tires on an experienced option with perceived positional flexibility makes sense.
Related: Penei Sewell can’t remember the last time he played guard. He’s confident he can do it anyway.

McDermott landed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Miami (FL) in 2018. He was a third-team All-ACC performer in his final season playing for the Hurricanes. The 6-foot-5, 311-pounder has appeared in 16 games while earning one start over the last two seasons. He was among the final handful of Jacksonville’s cuts ahead of last week’s 53-man roster deadline. McDermott reportedly worked out for the Buffalo Bills last week too.
