The Detroit Lions were forced to take practice indoors on Thursday morning due to bad weather. This was their final practice before Friday's preseason opener, and you can check out notes from the session below.

Injuries

Offense

  • The Lions had their third-team offense on the field quite a bit on Thursday, according to Tim Twentyman.
  • I don't think we'll ever see this happen in a game:
  • Joique Bell dropped down and did 10 push-ups after dropping a pass during practice.
  • Riley Reiff got work as the second-team left tackle on Thursday, while Jason Fox got reps as the second-team right tackle.
  • There was a bit of a dust-up between Dominic Raiola and Tahir Whitehead during Thursday's practice, and Raiola later got into it with Tracy Robertson.

Defense

  • According to Chris McCosky, Cliff Avril was "flying around" practice and looked "impressive."
  • The Lions had Bill Bentley, John Wendling and Erik Coleman on the first-team defense again on Thursday. Jacob Lacey again served as the first-team nickelback.
  • Bentley picked off Kellen Moore during Thursday's practice.
  • Jonte Green's name hasn't come up too much so far during training camp, but this is what Jim Schwartz had to say about him on Thursday:

Special Teams

  • Willie Young got some reps as a blocker on the kick return unit.
  • Here's a look at who the Lions had on their kick coverage unit during Thursday's practice:
