Lions notes: Recapping Wednesday's OTA practice

Lions notes looks at various pieces of news from Wednesday's OTA practice.

Leon Halip
  • The theme from the Detroit Lions' OTA practice on Wednesday was that the defense is currently ahead of the offense.
  • Sticking with that theme, Calvin Johnson apparently had a pretty rough day from a drops standpoint.
  • I can't imagine it took long for Reggie Bush to learn the new offensive scheme.
  • Stephen Tulloch and Cassius Vaughn both had interceptions on Wednesday.

  • Rookies Eric Ebron, Kyle Van Noy and Travis Swanson all practiced with the backups on Wednesday. Swanson, by the way, was actually getting work as the No. 2 right guard, but I can't imagine he'll be there for long.
  • Per Mike Mady, the Lions had Rodney Austin at left guard when Rob Sims missed an 11-on-11 drill.

  • Ndamukong Suh was his usual dominant self on Wednesday.

  • Joique Bell has been sitting out practice for precautionary reasons as he heals a "nagging" knee injury.

  • According to Darius Slay, the Lions' cornerbacks might play in press coverage almost all the time. Also according to Slay, Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin wants his cornerbacks to "get in people's faces." I like the sound of that.

  • Check out MLive for more tidbits from Wednesday's practice.

  • One Nevada oddsmaker currently has the Lions favored in 10 games next season. That puts them in a tie for sixth in the NFL.
