The Detroit Lions returned to the practice field on Sunday to continue training camp. Here's a look at some notes from the session:

Injuries

Just as an FYI, there won't be nearly as much live news from Lions practice after Sunday. This is why:

Offense

  • Patrick Edwards had a good practice.
  • Jim Schwartz liked what he saw from Ryan Broyles both on Sunday and Friday.
  • Dave Birkett reports that Rodney Austin got work as the second-team right guard and the third-team center on Sunday. He may be playing his way into the conversation for a spot on the team, and at the very least he's a good bet to make the practice squad.

Defense

  • Schwartz thinks the Lions improved quite a bit in stopping the run from Week 1 to Week 2 of the preseason.
  • Bill Bentley was back at first-team cornerback on Sunday, while Jacob Lacey returned to nickelback.
  • The Lions' first-team safeties once again were John Wendling and Erik Coleman. Ricardo Silva and Amari Spievey worked as the second-team safeties.

Special Teams

  • Hopefully these guys had a good practice after what happened on Friday:
  • Patrick Edwards returned punts for the Lions on Sunday.
