  • Lions kicker Jason Hanson has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the 11th time in his career. Hanson set a number of milestones during Sunday's game against the Chiefs, and he also made two field goals, including one from 51 yards out.
  • Don't forget to vote for Matthew Stafford for the FedEx Air Player of the Week.
  • Stafford was interviewed by Mike and Mike this morning.
  • Gosder Cherilus was taking reps with the first-team offense in practice on Wednesday, indicating he will return to the starting lineup this week.
  • The Lions hosted wide receivers Hank Baskett, Justin Gage, David Clowney and Johnnie Lee Higgins, defensive end Everette Brown and cornerback Benny Sapp for a workout on Tuesday. As always, the Lions gave the players a look in case injuries happen down the road and additional depth is needed.
  • Former Lions head coach Steve Mariucci recently said that the Lions have "some good scouts and they just needed to be listened to." Mariucci attributes the Lions' turnaround to Martin Mayhew actually listening to the scouts' evaluations, presumably unlike what Matt Millen did during his time in Detroit as general manager.
  • Chris Houston, who had an interception in each of the first two games, has been working on improving his hands.
  • Ndamukong Suh thinks divisional games "hold a little more value."

  • WXYZ asked Lions players about which jerseys they would buy if they were fans.
  • After the Giants appeared to fake injuries on Monday night, the NFL decided to send out a memo to remind teams that punishment will be handed out if teams are caught faking injuries.
  • Nike removed all of the pictures of its new NFL gear because the images "(were not) intended to be shared." I'm not quite sure how you mistakenly upload a picture for each team's underlayer shirt, but it appears somebody made a big mistake.
