- Lions players are off today, but they practiced on Monday in order to start preparing for the season opener against the Bears on Sunday. Louis Delmas was at practice, but unfortunately he was not joined by DeAndre Levy.
- Some Lions players have changed their number:
18 Tim Toone
25 Randy Phillips
29 John Wendling
32 Aaron Berry
- Spencer Havner was claimed by the Seahawks and Titans along with the Lions. Seattle has claimed a few guys that were awarded to Detroit. I'm sure that has to be getting annoying.
- The announcers for the Lions-Bears game will be Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick. Charissa Thompson (woo hoo!) will be on the sideline.
- Clark Judge of CBSSports.com thinks Matthew Stafford is ready to break out. He also likes what he sees in Jahvid Best.
- Stafford and Best are both on the 2010 All-Mancrush team.
- Cliff Avril updated his blog, sharing his thoughts on the D-line, training camp and the Bears game.
