  • The Detroit Lions were once again without TJ Jones, Michael Williams, Alex Bullard and Ziggy Ansah. Williams, by the way, is dealing with a muscle strain, according to the Free Press.

  • This is a nice look at one of the Lions' defensive line drills:
  • Well done, Nate Freese and Giorgio Tavecchio:
  • As expected, Corey Hilliard got the No. 1 reps at right tackle on Friday. The Lions have been splitting up the first-team reps at that spot pretty evenly between him and LaAdrian Waddle.

  • According to Kyle Meinke, Kyle Van Noy worked with the defensive line during positional drills. Although he's a linebacker, Van Noy is going to be used in a variety of ways, especially as a pass rusher, so it's no surprise that he's getting some work with the D-line.

  • Kris Durham had to limp off the field at one point on Friday, but he wasn't sidelined for very long.

  • At least during the two-minute drills, the second-team offense had a better performance than the first-team offense. (I suppose it's also possible that one defensive unit simply outperformed the other.)

  • Here's a look at how some wide receivers and defensive backs performed on Friday:
  • Former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr stopped by training camp on Friday.
