It’s the weekend, but that doesn’t mean much for the Detroit Lions. They’re right back to work on Saturday morning for Day 8 of training camp. So far, it’s been a fairly uneventful training camp—but that’s exactly what you want this time of year. Any big headlines before the preseason usually spell bad news, and for Detroit, the roster has managed to make it through the first week of practice fairly unscathed (knock on wood).
So as Day 8 begins and the Lions begin preparation for their first preseason game against the Oakland Raiders, follow along with all the updates from Allen Park. Practice begins at 9:45 today, and we’ll have a ton of crew on hand for the practice.
Mike Payton will be representing Pride of Detroit in the media room, while Alex Reno and myself will be in the bleachers among the fans. Feel free to stop by and say hello. I’ll be wearing our Matt Patricia t-shirt and a whole bunch of sunscreen.
