- On Day 2 of Detroit Lions training camp, Travis Lewis got a chance to be the first-team left outside linebacker.
- The rest of the first-team defense on Saturday was the same as Friday. Jason Jones and Willie Young were the primary No. 1 defensive ends, and the secondary once again consisted of Chris Houston, Ron Bartell, Bill Bentley (in the nickel), Glover Quin and Don Carey.
- It's worth noting that rookies Ziggy Ansah and Darius Slay both got some work with the first-team defense at their respective positions. Actually, Slay took over as the No. 1 right cornerback to finish practice after Bartell left with an injury.
- Before he got bumped up to the first team, Ansah was on the second-team defense along with Israel Idonije.
- Cornerback DeQuan Menzie worked as the No. 2 nickelback, according to Dave Birkett.
- Houston intercepted Matthew Stafford on a pass intended for Calvin Johnson and returned it for a touchdown, according to Tim Twentyman.
- Bentley picked off Stafford as well on a pass thrown in Johnson's direction, but Young jumped offside on the play, according to Mike Mady.
- Bentley has impressed a lot of his coaches and teammates, and he spent much of the first two days of training camp exchanging trash talk with Nate Burleson.
- I like the sound of this:

- He didn't actually practice on Saturday, but Louis Delmas still made a play from the sideline.
Delmas catches a ball that gets tipped out of bounds and runs it back to the end zone. Draws a roar from the crowd. #Lions— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) July 27, 2013
