  • David Akers had nothing but good things to say about Havard Rugland after Rugland was released on Tuesday.
  • Calvin Johnson doesn't seem too concerned about the knee injury that has forced him to miss most of the preseason.
  • Johnson is going to be featured in NBC's Sunday Night Football opening again this year (this time with Carrie Underwood).

  • Fun fact: The Lions' defensive tackles currently account for around 10.7 percent of the spots on the roster.

  • Ronnell Lewis, who was recently released by the Lions, has cleared waivers.

  • Former Lions defensive end Lawrence Jackson was released by the Minnesota Vikings this week.

  • Green Bay Packers running back DuJuan Harris is out for the year.
