Friday Notes: No Word of a Blackout Yet

  • The Lions headed indoors on Thursday and practiced in helmets and shorts.
  • So far I haven't heard anything about Saturday's preseason game against the Browns being blacked out, but we'll have to wait and see if anything comes out today.  If it was going to be blacked out I imagine we would know by now, so hopefully that means we'll get to watch the Lions live at 4:00 p.m. ET.
  • Speaking of that game, I will be doing live updates once again in the comments section of the game thread.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to do live updates for the final game of the preseason on Thursday as I'll be busy moving to Ann Arbor that day, so check back next week for an update on the status of that game thread.
  • Kevin Smith is positioning himself to start at running back.
  • Daniel Bullocks and Shaun McDonald are expected to play tomorrow against Cleveland, whereas Dan Campbell will not.  Jason Hanson is a game-time decision.
  • Game On believes Calvin Johnson will be a player to watch this season.
  • Artose Pinner is making a case for a spot on the 53-man roster.
  • Lions offensive guard Edwin Mulitalo helped the Detroit Martin Luther King Jr. High School band go to China to play at the Olympics.
  • Tickets are still available for the Lions' kickoff luncheon on August 27.
  • I was a guest on Dynasty Rogues Radio earlier this week to talk about the Lions.  You can listen to the interview here.
