Lions notes: Jason Hanson, Week 3 captains, more

New, comments

Lions notes looks at Jason Hanson's recent visit to practice, the captains for Week 3 and much more.

  • Former Detroit Lions kicker Jason Hanson stopped by practice on Friday to speak with rookie kicker Nate Freese, who has struggled quite a bit so far in his NFL career. Freese probably needs a perfect performance on Sunday in order to remain the Lions' kicker going forward, so hopefully whatever Hanson said to Freese will help him get things back on track this week.

  • The Lions' captains for Week 3 are going to be Dominic Raiola (offense), Rashean Mathis (defense) and Tahir Whitehead (special teams).

  • The Lions are hoping to get their running game going against the Green Bay Packers.
  • This sounds like a solid game plan for Sunday:
  • Nick Fairley put a big hit on Carolina Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert last week, and Tolbert actually said it was "the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life."

  • The Lions came in 111th in ESPN's "Ultimate Standings," and Pride Of Detroit actually got a pretty interesting shout out in their write-up on the team.

  • What is footgolf? I'll let Joseph Fauria explain.
