  • On Day 2 of Detroit Lions training camp, Rodney Austin lined up as the No. 1 right guard and Jason Fox served as the No. 1 right tackle. Based on Dylan Gandy getting first-team reps at right guard on Friday, it seems like rookie Larry Warford is currently third on the depth chart.

  • In case you missed it earlier, Calvin Johnson made a ridiculous catch in a one-on-one drill against Chris Houston. You can watch it here.

  • On another catch, Johnson hauled in the ball on an excellent pass from Matthew Stafford.
  • It sounds like Chaz Schilens, the Lions' newest wide receiver, is already turning some heads.
  • Kris Durham had a one-handed catch on Saturday, according to Tim Twentyman. On Friday, Durham had a pair of long touchdown receptions, according to MLive.

  • Corey Fuller had a nice catch of his own on a pass from Thaddeus Lewis, according to Josh Katzenstein.

  • One more wide receiver note: Carlos Monarrez reports that Micheal Spurlock looked good when he went up against the second-team defense.

  • According to MLive, some fans were heckling Brandon Pettigrew after he caught a pass on Saturday. Really, people?

  • Mike Mady reports that Mikel Leshoure is "looking much faster" than he did last year. Also, he said that Leshoure was able to pull away from some defenders on Saturday.

  • Per Dave Birkett, the Lions lined up with two running backs on the field "a handful of times" on Saturday.

  • This is pretty funny:
  • This is a great picture:
  • Paula Pasche took some video of the Lions' offensive line going through sled drills.
