- This won't come as a surprise given that Jim Caldwell has a zero-tolerance policy for domestic violence, but the Detroit Lions aren't even considering the possibility of signing running back Ray Rice. (It's also not a surprise because the Lions don't exactly need help at running back, and Rice's numbers last season were pretty awful. Quite simply, the talent there wouldn't justify the distractions that would come along with signing him even if the Lions did need help at running back.)
- Here's the latest update on Nick Fairley and Larry Warford:
Caldwell said he doesn't know if Fairley will be back this year. Said he and Warford are on different tracks. Warford expected back sooner.— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) December 1, 2014
- Well done, Ndamukong Suh:

It was Ndamukong Suh's idea for the Christmas sweaters and he bought them all, according to Caraun Reid.— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) December 1, 2014
- The Lions posted a time lapse of Ford Field going from hosting a circus to hosting the Buffalo Bills to hosting the annual Thanksgiving game in a span of a week or so. It was definitely a busy time for Ford Field in recent weeks.
- John Bonamego has a pretty interesting method of rewarding his players for making plays on special teams.
- In a do-over of the 2014 NFL Draft on FOX Sports, the Lions ended up with Auburn offensive lineman Greg Robinson, who was the second overall pick in real life. Eric Ebron, who was the Lions' actual pick, landed 28th overall in this re-draft.
- Get your mute button ready: Dick Stockton and Brady Quinn are the announcers for Sunday's game between the Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
