Lions training camp: Notes from Monday

News and notes from Monday's Detroit Lions training camp practice.

  • The Detroit Lions practiced in full pads on Monday, and there were several notable people in attendance, including team owner Martha Ford and five former players.
  • Calvin Johnson and Kyle Van Noy both practiced on Monday after sitting out Saturday's scrimmage.

  • Speaking of Van Noy, he was part of a 4-4 defensive front that the Lions showed on Monday. Per Dave Birkett, it included Van Noy, Ashlee Palmer, DeAndre Levy and Stephen Tulloch at linebacker, and Josh Katzenstein reports that the look featured only one cornerback.

  • Well done, unknown Lions coach.
  • After Darius Slay left practice on Monday, the Lions gave first-team reps at cornerback to both Cassius Vaughn and Bill Bentley. Jonte Green and Chris Greenwood, meanwhile, served as the second-team corners.

  • Kyle Meinke reports that Kris Durham and Bentley were involved in "some post-play shoving" at one point, but after practice, Durham chalked it up as something that just happens during camp.

  • I think it's safe to say the biggest hit of the day was delivered by running back George Winn.
  • Last but not least, happy birthday to Joique Bell, who turned 28 on Monday, and a belated happy birthday to Golden Tate, who turned 26 on Saturday.
