Lions training camp: Notes from Day 4

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

News and notes on the offense, defense and special teams from the fourth day of Detroit Lions training camp.

The Detroit Lions continued training camp on Monday morning with their first practice open to the general public. 1,621 fans were in attendance for the unpadded practice, as was Lions vice chairman Bill Ford Jr.

Here are some notes from Monday's session:

Offense

Defense

  • With Jason Jones out on Monday, Willie Young served as the No. 1 left defensive end, according to Tim Twentyman. Ziggy Ansah got bumped up to No. 1 right defensive end as a result.

  • Dave Birkett tweeted a Vine of the Lions' defensive linemen going through a drill:
  • Chris McCosky thinks Tahir Whitehead is playing quicker in his second career training camp.
  • Stephen Tulloch made a couple bold statements on Monday. First, he said the Lions are a playoff team, and then he compared Ansah to Jevon Kearse.
  • Per Brad Galli, Jim Schwartz said that the current group of cornerbacks, when healthy, is the best he's had since becoming head coach of the Lions.
