Wednesday Notes: Lions Re-Sign Jennings, Release Figurs

  • Jim Schwartz was "mic'd up" on Sunday, and there is an awesome video on letting us see and hear Schwartz at different points in the game.  I could watch it over and over.
  • Hoping to make their special teams better, the Lions re-signed wide receiver Adam Jennings and released Yamon Figurs, who was claimed on September 6.
  • Ernie Sims practiced today for the first time since injuring his shoulder against the Vikings.  His status for Sunday is unclear, but he hopes to play against the Bears.
  • Cliff Avril also returned to practice today.
  • Kevin Smith, Sammie Hill, Kalvin Pearson, and Dewayne White missed today's practice.
  • I was a guest on ESPN 1410 WNER yesterday to talk about the Lions' first win.  You can listen to audio of my appearance here.
  • Theo "Gridiron" Spight, the man who sings the fight song every time the Lions score, was interviewed by NPR to talk about the Redskins win.
  • Drew Stanton and Kevin Smith talked about the win on their blogs.
