Training Camp Notes: 8/1

  • Coach Rod Marinelli gave the Lions a bit of a break yesterday.  He surprised the team by changing the morning session from a practice to a walkthrough.  That means that rather than a full blown workout, the players had a change to relax a little since they have been working hard.  The afternoon session was a regular practice in just helmets and shorts.

  • Linebacker Teddy Lehman didn't practice after injuring his shoulder and had an MRI on Tuesday.  He is listed as week-to-week.

  • RB Kevin Jones, WR Devale Ellis, and DT Shaun Rogers are all still on the PUP list and obviously didn't practice.  Rogers still has a ways to go before practicing according to Rod Marinelli.

  • It appears the Lions and Calvin Johnson are very close to getting a contract done.  The final terms are reportedly holding things up, but it should be done soon.  I know I've said that before, but it looks like this is the real deal.  C.J. doesn't want to wait any longer since he wants to be out on the field with his teammates.
