The Detroit Lions continued training camp on Saturday with another morning practice. On Sunday, the Lions will head to Ford Field for a night practice that will be followed by a concert. Here's a look at some notes from Saturday's session, which was held at their facility in Allen Park:

Offense

Defense

  • The Lions moved Nick Fairley to defensive end during a drill on Saturday, and Gunther Cunningham confirmed after practice that they will move defensive linemen around to catch opposing offenses off guard.
  • It may be tough to go up against Calvin Johnson every day, but the positive is it can make you better by facing such a talented player.
  • Alphonso Smith intercepted a tipped pass and returned it for a touchdown on Saturday.
  • Cunningham described Bill Bentley as someone who "plays like he's been there before."
  • Cunningham also chimed in on Jonte Green after Saturday's practice.
  • It sounds like Jacob Lacey had a strong practice on Saturday.
  • Amari Spievey and Erik Coleman were once again the first-team safeties with Louis Delmas still out.
  • There seemed to be some mixed opinions on Sean Jones' performance on Saturday.
