  • The Detroit Lions continued training camp on Saturday morning with their eighth practice.
  • The following players missed all of today's practice: RB Maurice Morris, WR Titus Young, LT Jeff Backus, RT Gosder Cherilus, DT Andre Fluellen, DT Nick Fairley, CB Alphonso Smith and S Louis Delmas.
  • Jason Fox, who had been filling in at left tackle for the injured Backus, suffered an injury of his own this morning, leaving practice after going down in a drill. He was seen with a walking boot and crutches after practice, according to Dave Birkett. Chris McCosky reports that Fox has a mid-foot injury.
  • With Backus, Cherilus and now Fox out with injuries, the Lions are down to Tony Ugoh, Corey Hilliard, Johnny Culbreath and Isaac Sowells, who just signed a couple days ago, at offensive tackle.
  • Stephen Tulloch practiced at middle linebacker for the Lions for the first time since joining the team. DeAndre Levy was at ROLB and Justin Durant remained at LOLB.
  • Cornerbacks Eric Wright and Maurice Leggett had to leave practice with dehydration issues.
  • Titus Young, who has missed the last week of practice, expects to return next week.
