The Detroit Lions resumed training camp with a practice on Wednesday after getting a day off on Tuesday. Here are notes from Wednesday's session:

Injuries

Offense

  • Breaking news: Calvin Johnson had a drop during Monday's practice.
  • The Lions' second-team wide receivers on Wednesday consisted of Patrick Edwards, Stefan Logan and Maurice Stovall, according to Tim Twentyman.
  • The depth chart the Lions released on Tuesday didn't seem to be 100 percent accurate, but it was correct in listing Riley Reiff as the second-team right tackle, as that's where he practiced on Wednesday.
  • Corey Hilliard actually got some work as the first-team right tackle during team drills on Wednesday.
  • The sloppiness from Monday's practice seemed to carry over to Wednesday.

Defense

  • The defensive line also was a bit sloppy at times on Wednesday.
  • Cliff Avril batted down one of Matthew Stafford's passes on Wednesday.
  • With Kyle Vanden Bosch missing practice, Lawrence Jackson and Willie Young both got a chance to take first-team reps.
  • The Lions busted out one of their different looks for the defensive line on Wednesday, and Ronnell Lewis made a pretty good play.
  • Travis Lewis has typically played middle linebacker for the Lions so far during training camp, but he got reps as a second-team outside linebacker on Wednesday.
  • The Lions' first-team cornerbacks were Chris Houston and Bill Bentley on Monday. Jacob Lacey served as the nickelback.

Special Teams

  • The Lions had Stefan Logan and Patrick Edwards returning punts on Wednesday.
