The Detroit Lions held their third practice of training camp at Wayne State on Wednesday night. 8,935 fans attended the practice, which is pretty good considering there was some nasty weather in the area just before things got started. That nasty weather cleared up, though, and it gave Jim Caldwell an opportunity to take a picture in front of a rainbow:

Here's more from Wednesday's practice:



  • With the Lions at Joique Bell's alma mater, it was really a homecoming of sorts for him.
  • The Lions' top group of wide receivers once again consisted of Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate and Kevin Ogletree.

  • Jeremy Ross and Corey Fuller each had a memorable catch on Wednesday night.
  • Eric Ebron had another drop, but he followed it up with a "tough TD catch against good coverage," according to Kyle Meinke.

  • I don't think we have to worry about Joseph Fauria and Tate struggling with drops.
  • Corey Hilliard was the Lions' first-team right tackle on Wednesday. LaAdrian Waddle, meanwhile, got reps as the No. 2 left tackle.

  • Steven Miller scored a touchdown on Wednesday.


  • The Lions aren't going to practice in full pads until later in the week, but that didn't stop a couple defenders from getting a little physical on Wednesday night.
