  • The Detroit Lions held a pretty uneventful practice (if you can even call it that) on Friday, which wasn't a huge surprise considering they had a game on Thursday night. Actually, it looks like practicing one-handed catches was the only notable thing that happened. On Saturday, however, the Lions got training camp rolling again with an afternoon practice in Allen Park. It was "family day," so quite a few fans were in attendance.

  • After Saturday's practice, Jim Caldwell confirmed that offensive lineman Darren Keyton is out for the season. Keyton injured his patellar tendon on his first and only play on Thursday against the New York Jets and had to be carted to the locker room.

  • With Keyton out, the Lions will likely fill his spot on the roster with another offensive lineman once he's waived/injured.

  • The Lions announced two number changes prior to Saturday's practice:
  • Nate Ness took icing the kicker to a literal level following Saturday's session:

  • Several former players attended Saturday's practice:
