  • Jim Schwartz on the Lions' recent spell of injuries:

    "It's an NFL training camp; guys are starting to feel their groins. They're starting to feel their hamstrings and their quads and their calves and the soft-tissue stuff," Schwartz said. "Practice is hard and they've been out here quite a bit. But part of being a professional and being part of this business is the ability to be available and the ability to stay healthy.

    "We will take care of them with down-tempoing and cutting down some of their reps, but they have to take care of their bodies. They need to stretch and rest and do all of those things."

    Injuries are just part of the game, but it is concerning that so many players, especially in the secondary, are already or are still banged up.
  • Randy Phillips continues to impress Schwartz.
  • Turk McBride took Kyle Vanden Bosch's spot with the first-team defense on Friday while the veteran got a day off to rest.
  • Before hurting his hamstring on Friday, undrafted free agent Aaron Berry had done well enough in practice to be moved up to the second-team defense. (Dre' Bly is also playing with the second-team defense at cornerback.)
  • According to Tom Kowalski, Chima Ihekwoaba is "showing some flash" and Richard Dickson is "having an impressive camp."
