  • Louis Delmas participated in individual drills during today's practice. The seven-on-seven drills were not open to the media, so it's unknown if he took part in them as well. Even if he did, the real thing to watch is if he can practice for a second consecutive day tomorrow.
  • Tight end Dan Gronkowski and cornerbacks Aaron Berry, Paul Pratt and Jack Williams missed practice today.
  • Lawrence Jackson wasn't doing much because of a hamstring injury, according to one report, but another report said he took part in individual drills.
  • Jonathan Wade and Jared DeVries both got back on the field today, although Wade is stuck wearing a club-like cast because of his broken finger.
  • The Lions thought that an all-out blitz could be coming on Drew Stanton's game-winning touchdown run, which is why they made the call for a QB draw.
  • Pro Football Focus has a breakdown of Ndamukong Suh's performance against the Broncos, and they were very impressed.
  • Jordon Dizon, Jahi Word-Daniels and Roy Schuening were all placed on the waived/injured list recently. Because Dizon's injury is of the long-term variety, he is on injured reserve, but that's not the case for the other two.
    Within a five-day period, the team and player can reach a settlement on the injury. If that happens, there is a length applied to the settlement (how many weeks until the player will likely be healthy). At that time, the player can then sign with any other team. The Lions, though, couldn't re-sign him until six weeks after that time.

    If the player doesn't reach a settlement with the team, he is paid until it's determined that he's "healthy.''

    At that point, he is officially waived by the Lions, who cannot re-sign that player at any point all season.
    File this under complicated rules most people have never heard of.
  • Bill Ford recently said that Detroit is going to bid for another Super Bowl at some point.
