Detroit Lions Players Hold First Lockout Workout

Around 30 Detroit Lions players showed up to Detroit Country Day today for the first unofficial organized team workout. Workouts are set to take place throughout the week, and they are finally giving the players a few days to get together and work out with each other. Thanks to the NFL lockout, there hasn't been a single OTA or minicamp, so only now is a good portion of the team getting together.

Here is a rundown of news and notes from the workout:

  • Jahvid Best also delivered good news regarding his past injuries, saying that he hasn't experienced pain when running in "several months." It sounds like he is back to full health.
  • According to the Detroit News, Shaun Hill had surgery on his index finger last week but still participated in the throwing drills.
  • Vanden Bosch helped organize the workout and sounded like a coach when he talked about it with the media after Monday's session.
    "Today was kind of a feeling-out process, wanted to see where guys are at. Guys seem to be in good shape like they’ve been working out. ...’’ Vanden Bosch said. "I didn’t know what to expect coming in, but I couldn’t be happier with how things went today. They seemed to go really smoothly.’’
    The Oakland Press has video of Vanden Bosch speaking to the media. (There is also video of an interview with Titus Young, who was very impressed with Stafford's arm strength.)
  • The team-wide workouts are scheduled to take place through Thursday.
