Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

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

Detroit Lions training camp continued on Friday morning with an unpadded practice. Here are some notes from the session:

Offense

Defense

  • It was Tahir Whitehead's turn to be the first-team left outside linebacker on Friday.

  • Part of the reason the quarterbacks may be struggling a bit, according to Dave Birkett, is that the secondary is "improved."

  • Cornerback D.J. Johnson had a pretty solid day of practice.
  • Jim Schwartz was not pleased with the defense's performance on Friday.
  • Here's a video of the Lions' defensive line going through a drill:

Special teams

  • Havard Rugland showed off his leg on Friday on kickoffs.
