Lions training camp: Notes from Saturday's practice

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

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

Detroit Lions training camp continued with a padded practice on Saturday in front of a record crowd. Here are some notes from the session:

Offense

Defense

  • Perhaps we shouldn't close the door on the idea of Travis Lewis being the starting left outside linebacker just yet, because he ran with the first team at that position on Saturday.

  • With three defensive ends out on Saturday, the top three players at the position were Ziggy Ansah, Ronnell Lewis and Devin Taylor.

  • Ansah and the defensive line seemingly had a really solid practice.
  • Ansah did catch some heat from Jim Schwartz for a "little extra push" he gave an offensive player after a play. It sounds like there was more chippiness than usual during Saturday's practice, but that's really just something that happens as training camp drags on.

  • According to Chris McCosky, Ndamukong Suh hosted 90 kids from Detroit public schools at practice on Saturday.

  • Suh led the way when some defensive linemen gave chase to the running backs down the field in a drill that Kyle Vanden Bosch certainly would have appreciated.

  • Nick Fairley had a funny comment about his jersey getting ripped during practice.
