  • FYI: Saturday's Detroit Lions training camp practice has been pushed back from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Plan accordingly.

  • Both DeAndre Levy and Joseph Fauria missed practice on Friday. It turns out that Levy was absent again after tweaking something earlier in the week, while Fauria was sidelined after leaving practice early on Thursday with a "tweak" of his own. Neither injury sounds serious, and Fauria went all Aaron Rodgers on Twitter after Thursday's practice to reinforce that notion.
  • In addition to the usual cast of players who continued to be sidelined by injuries, David Ausberry was out as well on Friday.

  • On a positive note, it feels like it's only a matter of time until LaAdrian Waddle and Joique Bell make their 2015 camp debuts.
  • In the meantime, with Waddle still on the PUP list, Michael Williams got some No. 1 reps at right tackle for a change.

  • Inconsistency seems to be a theme with certain players:
  • Calvin Johnson, meanwhile, was out there making more ridiculous plays. (Save it for the season, Megatron.)

  • On a related note, Darius Slay jokingly said that he can "cover anybody on this planet" earlier in the week, but I don't think he accounted for Megatron when he made that statement.
  • Overall, it sounds like the defense won Friday's practice by a pretty wide margin.
  • In news from earlier in the week, Josh Bynes was the one who stepped in for Levy on Thursday as the first-team weakside linebacker. Travis Lewis got some first-team work on Friday.

  • Also from Thursday: It sounds like Ryan Broyles really turned up his intensity during practice.

  • Awwwwwwwwww:
  • Finally, let this be a reminder to always keep your head on a swivel:
