- The one sack the Detroit Lions allowed against the Minnesota Vikings has been changed to a rush by Matthew Stafford. As a result, the Lions' offensive line now has a clean sheet for the sacks category.
- Ndamukong Suh's agent thinks the Lions defensive tackle is being persecuted by both the NFL and the media.
- Despite his latest fine, Suh said on Wednesday that his style of play isn't going to change; he's "going to always play tough, hard."
- According to ESPN's Ed Werder, the Lions are "within $55,000 of being fined $50K as an organization for multiple violations" following Suh's fine.
- Mikel Leshoure, who was inactive last week, said on Wednesday that "it's a little frustrating to not be on the field," but he's going to be "professional about the situation." Josh Katzenstein reports that Leshoure has talked with former Lions running back Kevin Smith about not being active.
- ESPN's Michael Rothstein examined all of the different formations the Lions used in Week 1.
- Darius Slay didn't have a problem with being benched at the end of last week's game because he's "here to win."
- Holy Schwartz! has an excellent breakdown of all the different celebrations Lions players did in Week 1.
- Speaking of celebrations, Joique Bell wants his "Hip Hop Hooray" one to become his "tradition thing."

Over his career, when @ReggieBush has 19+ att., his teams are 9-2. A little surprised he's only had 19+ carries 11 times in his career.— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) September 11, 2013
