With many former players in attendance, the Detroit Lions held their final practice open to the general public on Wednesday. You can check out notes from the session below.


  • The first-team offensive line on Wednesday featured Jake Scott at right guard and Corey Hilliard at right tackle. Larry Warford and Jason Fox were with the second-team offense, but Warford later got No. 1 reps at right guard.

  • Jeff Backus was at practice on Wednesday to help coach the offensive line.

  • Some wide receivers we haven't heard a whole lot about so far drew some attention on Wednesday.
  • Corey Fuller, on the other hand, drew some attention for a negative reason.
  • Nate Burleson said during a live chat on on Wednesday that Joseph Fauria and Calvin Johnson "have probably caught the ball the best in this camp." Burleson also talked up Patrick Edwards quite a bit.

  • Per Brad Galli, Johnson has been watching film with Matthew Stafford in order to see the field like a quarterback.

  • This pretty much sums up Brandon Pettigrew:
  • Mike Mady has a recap of the Lions' "gotta win" drill.


Special teams

  • David Akers went at least 2-for-2 in a drill where the Lions had to hurry to get their field goal unit on the field.

  • According to Mady, Havard Rugland made two field goals before pushing a 61-yard attempt wide right.

  • The Lions practiced onside kicks on Wednesday.

  • Steven Miller showed off his speed as the Lions' punt returner.
