Lions training camp: Notes from Friday's practice

News and notes on the offense, defense and special teams from Friday's Detroit Lions training camp practice.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions training camp continued on Friday morning with an unpadded practice. Here are some notes from the session:


  • Dylan Gandy served as the Lions' first-team right guard for the second day in a row on Friday.

  • Corey Hilliard got first-team reps at right tackle.

  • Chris McCosky believes that Matthew Stafford "has not thrown the ball particularly well yet in this camp."

  • Reggie Bush won his matchup with Stephen Tulloch on Friday.
  • Bush apparently has had a case of the dropsies lately.
  • It sounds like Kris Durham performed quite well in the Lions' red zone drill.
  • I'm not sure what the purpose of this was, but if it works, it works.
  • Check out the Lions' offensive line going up against the blocking sled:


  • It was Tahir Whitehead's turn to be the first-team left outside linebacker on Friday.

  • Part of the reason the quarterbacks may be struggling a bit, according to Dave Birkett, is that the secondary is "improved."

  • Cornerback D.J. Johnson had a pretty solid day of practice.
  • Jim Schwartz was not pleased with the defense's performance on Friday.
  • Here's a video of the Lions' defensive line going through a drill:
