- Ravens veteran tight end Benjamin Watson suffered a torn Achilles on the very first offensive play in Saturday’s exhibition game against the Lions. After the game, several Lions players reached out to Watson:
Sad to see this happen to such a good man. Praying for your recovery! Everything is working for your good. https://t.co/zFKBALxPbY— Alex Carter (@AlexCarter) August 28, 2016

- Pro Football Focus had high marks for everyone on the Lions starting offensive line on Saturday, except Travis Swanson, who we believe actually had an excellent game.

- Newly acquired offensive lineman Brandon Thomas, said his goodbyes to the 49ers and looks ready to join Detroit:
Thanks 49ers for the opportunity these last two years. Looking forward to playing the game I love for the Detroit Lions #blessed #Lions— Brandon Thomas (@BTHOM63_100) August 28, 2016
