  • It sounds like the Detroit Lions should have both wide receiver Calvin Johnson and offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle available on Sunday despite them getting banged up against the Arizona Cardinals.
  • It also sounds like running back Reggie Bush will be back this week.
  • Jim Caldwell is not pleased with the amount of penalties the Lions are taking, but he doesn't have any issues with offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's play-calling. Caldwell went on to say that every call on offense, defense and special teams goes through him. In other words, if Lombardi makes a call that Caldwell doesn't approve of, the head coach ultimately has the final say over what is actually called.

  • The announcers for Sunday's game between the Lions and New England Patriots are going to be Joe Buck and Troy Aikman (with Erin Andrews on the sideline).

  • Like other NFL teams that were on the road on Sunday, the Lions underwent "an unannounced DEA inspection" after playing the Cardinals. The inspection centered around the Lions' medical staff, as the DEA is currently investigating "potential violations" of the Controlled Substances Act.

  • The Lions are projected to take Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Bennett in SB Nation's new 2015 NFL mock draft.
