Lions training camp: Notes from Thursday's practice

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

News and notes on the offense, defense and special teams from Thursday's Detroit Lions training camp practice.

Detroit Lions training camp got back underway on Thursday after a day off. The Lions practiced in full pads, and there were quite a few interesting tidbits from the session, so let's get right into it:

Offense

  • The rotation at right guard and right tackle saw Dylan Gandy and Jason Fox taking first-team reps on Thursday.

  • Per Josh Katzenstein, Chaz Schilens lined up with the first-team offense for at least one rep.

  • Patrick Edwards has also been getting first-team reps, mainly as one of the outside wide receivers, according to Dave Birkett.

  • Speaking of Edwards, he had a pretty great catch on Thursday.
    Mike Mady noted that Edwards is now a "much better route runner." It really does seem like he is in position to make the 53-man roster this year.

  • Calvin Johnson just continues to do ridiculous things on the football field.
  • The Lions' first-team offense capped off their two-minute drill with a touchdown catch by Brandon Pettigrew, who impressed NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah on Thursday.
  • Matthew Stafford's side-arm throwing style returned for at least one play on Thursday. It worked, by the way.

  • It sounds like Joique Bell had a pretty successful offseason.
  • Katzenstein thinks LaAdrian Waddle, who is a candidate for the Lions' fourth spot at offensive tackle, is looking solid in training camp.
