Tuesday Notes: Edwin Mulitalo Removed From PUP List

  • The Lions returned to their normal routine on Monday with a morning practice in full pads and an afternoon practice in helmets and shorts.  Both practices were held on the outdoor field.
  • That return to their normal routine will be short lived as the Lions will only have a single practice today and a single practice tomorrow as they have a game on Thursday.  In fact, Detroit will not revert back to the normal two-a-days format until Sunday, giving the players some time to rest up before and after the preseason opener.
  • With the shift to a single practice today, the Lions are also moving indoors for the first time during training camp.  So far the weather has cooperated with the Lions very well, allowing the team to be outside during every session to date.  For whatever reason, though, the Lions will practice inside today.
  • By moving their practice indoors, it will not be open to the general public as originally scheduled.  Instead, fans will have to wait until next Monday for their next chance to watch a Lions practice.
  • Offensive guard Edwin Mulitalo was removed from the PUP list yesterday and returned to practice as well.  His return means there are only three players remaining on the PUP list, and that number is actually expected to shrink come this time next week.  Wide receiver Shaun McDonald and tight end Dan Campbell are expected to return to practice next Monday, and if everything goes according to plan, safety Daniel Bullocks could be taken off the list as well shortly after that.
  • Brian Kelly, Artose Pinner, and Manny Ramirez also returned to practice on Monday.  Buster Davis, Cory Redding, and Langston Moore, on the other hand, did not practice as they are still dealing with injuries.
  • Offensive coordinator Jim Colletto thinks that talking about running the ball is much different than actually running the ball.
  • Special teams play can decide roster spots.
  • Running back Brian Calhoun is finally healthy again.
  • Center Dominic Raiola is a big golf fan, so he should enjoy the fact that the PGA Championship is at Oakland Hills this week.
  • The Free Press is giving away a pair of Lions season tickets as well as a free limo ride to each game for the lucky winner.
