- 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.
No long-term issues for Calvin Johnson (elbow) and LaAdrian Waddle (ankle), according to Caldwell.— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) November 17, 2014
- It also sounds like running back Reggie Bush will be back this week.
Reggie Bush said he expects to play Sunday in New England. Said week off helped that injured ankle.— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) November 17, 2014
- 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 on penalties: "Those are a concern. We have far too many penalties. We have to get it straightened out."— Detroit Lions (@Lions) November 17, 2014
#Lions Jim Caldwell on Joe Lombardi's play calling on offense: 'Certainly, certainly I'm satisfied with it. Joe does a good job.'— Paula Pasche (@paulapasche) November 17, 2014
- 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.
Lions notes looks at Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush and much more.
