The Detroit Lions returned to Allen Park to continue training camp on Monday with a full-padded morning practice. The team has Tuesday off and will return to the practice field on Wednesday as preparations for Friday's preseason game continue. Here's a look at notes from Monday's practice:

Injuries

Offense

  • According to Tom Leyden, Maurice Stovall continued to "play well" and "make good catches" on Monday. Anwar Richardson reported that Stovall scored a touchdown over Jacob Lacey during the Lions' goal line drill.
  • Titus Young also beat Lacey on a long touchdown pass, according to Richardson. In general, Young had a solid day, it appears.
  • Riley Reiff got a lot of praise during Monday's practice.
  • Even though Reiff is looking good, it doesn't appear that he's about to jump into the starting lineup at right tackle just yet.

Defense

  • Jumping offside was a problem for the defensive line on Monday, and Jim Schwartz was none too happy about this.
  • Aside from the offside problem, it does sound like the D-line had a pretty good day.
  • Cliff Avril hit the practice field for the first time during training camp on Monday.
  • Willie Young had a pick six off of Matthew Stafford.
  • With Kyle Vanden Bosch leaving practice early, Lawrence Jackson got reps on the first-team defense.
  • Bill Bentley once again practiced as one of the first-team cornerbacks.

Special Teams

  • In general, it sounded like the Lions had a pretty sloppy practice, and fumble issues on special teams contributed to the sloppiness.
  • The Lions had Stefan Logan, Keiland Williams and Justin Miller returning kicks, according to Anwar Richardson. Logan, Titus Young and Patrick Edwards returned punts on Monday.
