  • Jon Baldwin, who was claimed off waivers by the Detroit Lions on Monday, did not practice on Tuesday. Here's why: Waiver claims are typically made official a day after they're initially reported. In Baldwin's case, however, that did not happen, so it seems like something came up during his physical. It could be a case where the Lions simply want to get a second opinion on something, or this could be a sign that he won't actually pass his physical. Either way, his status with the Lions is up in the air right now.

  • Ziggy Ansah also didn't practice on Tuesday, but he again tested out his shoulder, indicating that he's getting close to being taken off the PUP list.

  • 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.
