The Detroit Lions continued training camp on Sunday morning with an unpadded practice. Here are some notes from the session:
Jake Scott worked as the first-team right guard for the second day in a row, although Larry Warford once again later got some No. 1 reps of his own at the position.
- It was Corey Hilliard's turn to be the No. 1 right tackle on Sunday.
- With Calvin Johnson getting the day off, the Lions had Patrick Edwards running with the first-team offense.
Shaun Hill got a chance to take some reps with the No. 1 offense on Sunday, and he performed quite well, according to Josh Katzenstein.
Joseph Fauria stepped in for Brandon Pettigrew at one point on Sunday and did a "good job" blocking against Devin Taylor, according to Chris McCosky.
Riley Reiff dominated his matchup with Ziggy Ansah on Sunday.

- Per Tim Twentyman, the Lions' first-team defense featured Willie Young and Ziggy Ansah at defensive end, Tahir Whitehead at left outside linebacker and Louis Delmas back at safety.
Amari Spievey and Chris Hope split No. 2 reps at safety with Delmas returning, according to Dave Birkett.
