- Dave Birkett interviewed Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn this week. Earlier in the week, we heard that Quinn was not concerned with Levy's injury. After Birkett's Q&A session on Saturday, the prognosis seems even better (emphasis added):
A lot of questions about Levy’s health in the mailbag this week, so let’s start here. There’s no firm timetable for Levy to return to action, but general manager Bob Quinn told me this week that he expects Levy to return soon.
- Pro Football Focus ranked all of the NFL's offensive lines. The Lions landed at No. 22 on the list and it's hard to argue against that. For what it's worth, though, they ranked the Lions at No. 9 at this point last year.
- Here's the latest cryptic, non-specific message from Eric Ebron's social media:
- Former Lions tight end Joseph Fauria wished Ebron his best in his recovery:
Man I hate seeing friends and family get hurt. Prayers to #55 and #85.— Joseph Fauria (@BigJoeFauria) August 6, 2016
- Looks like Stephen Tulloch may finally land on a roster. And it's exactly where you thought he might play:
Eagles and former Lions' LB Stephen Tulloch now in "heavy negotiations", per source. Eagles could soon have a new linebacker.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 6, 2016
- The Lions weren't the only team in the NFC North to lose a valuable part of their offense on Saturday. The Chicago Bears may have lost their starting center for the entire season:
