Observations

  • Not only did Dwayne Washington see a huge uptick in snaps, but of his 25 plays, he touched the ball on nearly half (11) of those snaps. I wouldn't be surprised to see that percentage get even higher next week. 

  • At tight end, the Lions went with Cole Wick as the primary backup now that he is healthy again. Orson Charles may not be on this roster too much longer, especially if Brandon Pettigrew comes back from PUP soon.

  • Graham Glasgow saw a huge uptick in special teams play. Last week, Glasgow saw his first three snaps of NFL play. This week, that number jumped to 13. That has to be a sign that Glasgow is getting close to ready if the Lions need a replacement on the offensive line.

Observations

  • A'Shawn Robinson is getting close to taking over a starting role at this point. This time it was him, and not Khyri Thornton, who saw more snaps than "starter" Tyrunn Walker. Robinson had just two tackles against the Packers, but one was for a loss.

  • While we're talking about rookies, Anthony Zettel made his first NFL appearance against the Packers. Zettel only played seven snaps, but managed to pick up a tackle in limited play.

  • Zaviar Gooden quickly jumped Thurston Armbrister in the depth chart, despite being added to the team late last week. It's probably safe to say that if/when the Lions get healthy at linebacker, Armbrister won't be on the team much longer. 

  • After Tavon Wilson left the game early with an injury, Rafael Bush, unsurprisingly, took over strong safety duties. Clearly the Lions aren't ready to use Miles Killebrew yet.
