- The Detroit Lions haven't made any decisions just yet on whether or not running back Jahvid Best will start the regular season on the PUP list. It'd be shocking if he doesn't open the season on the PUP list, but Jim Schwartz says nothing has been decided for now.
- Something I didn't realize until reading this story from the Free Press: Bill Bentley's best friend is Janoris Jenkins. Both players are from Pahokee, Florida, and both players are hoping to start in Week 1 when the Lions take on the St. Louis Rams.
- Gunther Cunningham doesn't seem too worried about the possibility of Louis Delmas missing time in the regular season. The reason? John Wendling.
- Calvin Johnson bought a new house after he signed his new deal with the Lions.
- The Lions hosted members of the United States Navy at Wednesday's practice.
