Lions Training Camp Notes: Football Is Back!

Smile, it's game day!
Smile, it's game day!
  • The Lions will get to know the 3-4 defense very well during the preseason, because every team they play uses that system. That's probably a good thing considering half the regular season schedule will involve a team that uses a 3-4 defense.
  • Exhibition game or not, Ndamukong Suh is excited to play in a football game again. The same goes for Matthew Stafford, who hasn't played in a game since Dec. 6.
  • Stephen Peterman is ready to get back to game speed, as he hasn't played since last November.
  • Cliff Avril is impressing many, including Gunther Cunningham.
  • Bryant Johnson is having a much better camp with the Lions this time around because he isn't injured. Last year, if you remember, he got hurt in a golf cart accident and missed a couple weeks of practice.
  • Dennis Northcutt and Shaun Hill worked on routes and their timing for 10 extra minutes after practice on Thursday.
