The Detroit Lions held a morning practice on Monday as training camp continued. Here are notes from the session:

Injuries

Offense

  • The Lions split the first-team reps at running back between Kevin Smith and Keiland Williams on Monday.
  • Titus Young was back at practice on Monday after the birth of his child, and he put on quite a show.
  • With Calvin Johnson out, Maurice Stovall stepped in for him on the first-team offense.
  • Riley Reiff got some reps as the backup right guard on Monday. This is the first time he's taken any reps at guard with the Lions.
  • Jason Fox got some work as the first-team left tackle to give Jeff Backus a bit of a break.
  • Rob Sims like what he sees out of undrafted offensive lineman Rodney Austin.

Defense

  • Corey Williams did his best Willie Young impression on Monday by intercepting Matthew Stafford.
  • Bill Bentley shifted to nickelback on Monday, allowing Jacob Lacey to get reps at first-team cornerback opposite Chris Houston.
  • As you probably could have guessed based on the tweets about Titus Young, Bentley didn't have a very good practice.
  • Fellow rookie cornerback Jonte Green also didn't have a very good practice, according to Anwar Richardson.
    Rookie cornerback Jonte Green also had issues during practice. Green dropped a clear interception while defending receiver Jarett Dillard in one-on-one drills, plus was yelled at by coach Jim Schwartz for tackling teammates twice despite players not wearing pads on Monday.
  • John Wendling and Erik Coleman again received the first-team reps at safety.
