It’s a new week and you could even say it’s “Game Week” if you don’t mind being right on a technicality. On Friday, the Detroit Lions will face off against the Oakland Raiders for each team’s preseason opener.
Monday, the two teams will practice at their respective facilities. However, starting on Tuesday, the Lions and Raiders will begin the first of two joint practices in Napa, California.
So before we get the joint practices we’ve all been waiting for, the Lions have one more day of practice in Allen Park and we’ll be on hand to give you up-to-date information on the team and how they look on the field.
Be sure you’re following @PrideOfDetroit on Twitter to get the updates live as they come in. But if you’re still holding out on creating a Twitter account (good for you), we’ve got a Twitter list at the end of this article that will update live as every Lions beat writer tweets out their observations from Monday’s practice.
