Jacob Lacey Solid On Day 3 Of Lions Training Camp


One of the standouts from Sunday's Detroit Lions practice was cornerback Jacob Lacey. He had been working primarily on the second string during the first two days of training camp, but he got reps with the first-team defense on Sunday. He made his stay on the first string worthwhile by putting together an outstanding practice.

Alphonso Smith made a strong case to be one of the starting cornerbacks on Friday and Saturday, but Lacey made a strong case of his own on Sunday. Right now, it looks like that second starting job will come down to Smith and Lacey. This battle will continue throughout training camp and into the preseason, and it should be a good one to watch based on the last few days.
