Lions notes: Three players change numbers

Lions notes looks at some number changes, an injury update from Monday and much more.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports
  • Three Detroit Lions players have new numbers following the final round of cuts: (Kyle Van Noy has apparently decided to stick with No. 95 for the time being.)

  • Van Noy, James Ihedigbo and Don Carey didn't practice for the Lions on Monday. Van Noy's absence is no surprise considering he just had surgery and could be put on injured reserve with the designation to return later this week, and Carey has missed quite a bit of time now with a hamstring injury. It's still not clear what's wrong with Ihedigbo, though.
  • It appears that Nick Fairley's demotion to the No. 2 defense in the preseason did in fact serve as a wake-up call to him.
  • Jim Caldwell isn't shying away from the Lions' high expectations or his overall responsibilities.
  • Reminder: The Lions' jerseys are going to feature a patch honoring late owner William Clay Ford this season.
  • I think this may be the best Madden glitch ever.
