Lions notes: Pro Bowl voting update, Rodney Austin, more

Lions notes looks at the latest Pro Bowl voting update, Rodney Austin and much more.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports
  • Calvin Johnson is the No. 1 wide receiver in the latest Pro Bowl voting update, and he's fifth overall. Here's a look at where some other Detroit Lions players stand:
  • It turns out that Rodney Austin did in fact receive an offer from the Tennessee Titans before the Lions put him on their 53-man roster.

  • Ziggy Ansah is on the verge of setting some franchise records for sacks by a rookie.

  • In order to make sure he takes care of the ball going forward, Reggie Bush was apparently carrying a football with him everywhere at practice on Wednesday, according to Justin Rogers.

  • The Lions have done a pretty good job of spreading the ball around on offense this season. Case in point:
  • The Lions' running backs have been outstanding this season.
  • Your daily reminder that the Lions' run defense has been ridiculous as of late:
  • According to Chip Kelly, the Philadelphia Eagles had Darius Slay ranked pretty high on their draft board going into the 2013 NFL Draft.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was fined $100,000 by the NFL for his kick return shenanigans on Thanksgiving.
