- Two other injury notes from Tuesday: Michael Williams was out again, but Darius Slay did in fact practice after leaving Monday's session early, so that's good news.
- He may not be a starter on the Lions' depth chart, but Kyle Van Noy got No. 1 reps at outside linebacker on Tuesday, according to Michael Rothstein.
- When Rob Sims and Dominic Raiola took a break on Tuesday, the Lions had Alex Bullard at left guard and Travis Swanson at center, according to Josh Katzenstein.
- Giorgio Tavecchio and Nate Freese both made all five of their field goal attempts on Tuesday.
- Matthew Stafford and Golden Tate connected for a touchdown during Tuesday's practice.

Just saw a set with Eric Ebron split outside and Calvin Johnson in the slot. Chew on that one.— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) August 5, 2014
- The Lions defense spent some time preparing for the read-option on Tuesday.
- Ex-Lions head coach Steve Mariucci attended Tuesday's practice as part of his job with NFL Network.
- Lions vice chairman Bill Ford Jr. was also at practice on Tuesday.
