  • The Lions had 1,609 fans show up to their practice on Saturday morning. That is a record for them.
  • Rookie wide receiver Titus Young missed practice because of muscle tightness and could be out for a couple of days.
  • Jim Schwartz had this to say about new Lion Eric Wright, who officially signed on Saturday:
    "I thought Eric Wright played very well (in 2010). I was surprised to hear people say he had an off year last year; I thought he played very well last year except for a few plays. I think the expectations with him and also with his team and everywhere else were so high that the second they gave up one play, everybody was disappointed. But I thought he played some very, very good games and matched up very, very well. He’s been a starter since he’s come into the NFL; he’s a good player. Eric’s not coming in here to compete for the 80th spot on the roster and stuff like that, he’s a quality pro that we expect to go out and cover and play good for us.
