Lions training camp: Notes on offense from Day 1

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

News and notes on the offense from the first day of Detroit Lions training camp.

  • Who led the Detroit Lions out of the locker room on offense as training camp got underway? None other than Matthew Stafford, according to Mike O'Hara.

  • Also according to O'Hara, Dominic Raiola is up to 315 pounds and apparently now has blond hair.

  • In more important news, the Lions' first-team offense had Dylan Gandy at right guard and Corey Hilliard at right tackle. Jason Fox was the No. 2 right tackle.

  • According to Mike Mady, Reggie Bush and Mikel Leshoure both got work with the first-team offense.

  • During Friday's practice, Bush showed exactly why the Lions signed him.
    Per Chris McCosky, Riley Reiff "wiped out" Ziggy Ansah on that touchdown run.

  • Also per McCosky, Hilliard apparently struggled a bit going up against Jason Jones in the Lions' 11-on-11 drill.

  • Calvin Johnson, as expected, did Calvin Johnson things on Day 1 of camp.
  • According to Tim Twentyman, Chaz Schilens, who just signed with the Lions, had "a couple of nice catches early on in practice."

  • Joseph Fauria caught a touchdown pass from Shaun Hill during Friday's practice, but he might have gotten a bit banged up in the process. Injury aside, that is exactly what the Lions want out of a big target like Fauria: the ability to go up and get passes in the end zone.
