The Detroit Lions held their first practice that was open to the general public on Tuesday, and approximately 1,500 fans were in attendance. The Lions also practiced in full pads for the first time during training camp on Tuesday. The players will now get Wednesday off before returning for practice on Thursday.

Offense

  • Joique Bell scored the first touchdown by a running back during the Lions' live running drill.
  • The Lions unleashed fullback James Bryant on Tuesday. A fullback who opens holes in the running game? Yes please.
  • There was a bit of a scare during practice on Tuesday when Calvin Johnson briefly left the field with what appeared to be a left hand injury. Thankfully, Johnson quickly returned to the field after getting it checked out by a trainer. (Crisis averted.)

Defense

  • Your daily Gunther Cunningham is angry update:
  • It sounds like Willie Young had another good day of practice.
  • Ronnell Lewis got some reps on the second-team defense on Tuesday.
  • Ndamukong Suh dominated the run period of practice, according to Chris McCosky.
  • According to Anwar Richardson, the Lions' defensive line dominated the offensive line during team drills.
  • Ronnie Sneed was pulled from practice and had his shoulder wrapped, according to McCosky.
  • With Louis Delmas limited and Erik Coleman out, the first-team safeties on Tuesday were Amari Spievey and John Wendling, and Wendling made the most of his opportunity to be on the first team.

Special Teams

  • It appears Ryan Donahue had a solid practice:
  • The Lions had Jarett Dillard, Stefan Logan, Titus Young and Patrick Edwards returning punts on Tuesday.
