Lions training camp: Notes from Day 1

News and notes from the first day of Detroit Lions training camp.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports
  • MLive's Justin Rogers noted that the Detroit Lions' "efficiency" stood out during the team's first training camp practice of 2014. Getting the most out of the Lions' time on the practice field seems to be a point of emphasis for Jim Caldwell, as evidenced by these tweets from a fan who attended Monday's practice:
  • Also according to Rogers, Eric Ebron had a drop on Monday and "had to double-catch a couple others." (Mark it down on the bingo card!)

  • ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports that Kris Durham and Kevin Ogletree both "had nice catches" on Monday.

  • Ziggy Ansah missed Monday's practice since he is still on the PUP list. Although he worked with a trainer away from the action, Ansah told Rothstein that he has no idea when he will actually practice. That doesn't exactly sound encouraging.

  • This is interesting: Corey Hilliard got the first No. 1 reps at right tackle on Monday. I'd imagine that LaAdrian Waddle will rotate in as the No. 1 right tackle as camp progresses.

  • Darius Slay seemingly had a solid first day of practice.
  • There are multiple banners at the Lions' facility honoring William Clay Ford.
