  • The Detroit Lions held "Family Day" at training camp on Saturday, and they had some, well, special guests in attendance:
  • Calvin Johnson got a day off on Saturday, and he was replaced at wide receiver by Kris Durham, according to Kyle Meinke.

  • Also according to Meinke, Jason Jones and Devin Taylor served as the Lions' first-team defensive ends.

  • It was LaAdrian Waddle's turn to practice as the first-team right tackle.

  • Giorgio Tavecchio is on a roll at kicker.
  • Josh Katzenstein reports that Sam Martin is still serving as the Lions' kickoff specialist.

  • The first-team offense seemingly had a much better practice on Saturday than it did on Friday.
