Lions notes: Number changes, injury updates, more

Lions notes looks at number changes, a couple injury updates and more.

Gregory Shamus
  • A few Detroit Lions players changed their number prior to the start of the regular season:
  • We are going to have to wait until Wednesday's injury report for an update on Ziggy Ansah's health, because Jim Schwartz declined to share any information on Tuesday.

  • Schwartz was also pretty mum on how Michael Williams' injury suddenly became bad enough for him to miss the entire season and go on injured reserve.

  • One more Schwartz note: He refused to confirm that Larry Warford and Jason Fox are starting on the right side of the offensive line. (Sigh.)

  • This is pretty funny:
  • Louis Delmas really wants to make sure he stays healthy.
  • On Tuesday, Matthew Stafford responded to some of the criticism his throwing mechanics received over the offseason.

  • The announcers for Sunday's game between the Lions and Minnesota Vikings are going to be Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick. You are the worst, FOX.

  • The Lions are 17th in SB Nation's initial 2013 power rankings.

  • Battle Red Blog put together an extensive and interesting 2014 mock draft that has the Lions trading down and drafting Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.

  • "Fantasy Failball" is now a thing, and it's pretty freaking great.
