The Detroit Lions will close out training camp on Saturday morning, as they get ready for the regular season that now sits 15 days away. Before you know it, the Lions will be kicking off against the Chicago Bears in a mostly-empty Ford Field.
But before that happens, media will be privy to one more full practice. It’s one final glimpse of this team before they go into regular season mode, and the media only gets a brief 15-20 minute look at the team per day (mostly used to take attendance.)
Today is essentially the same as the final preseason game for us fans. It’s the last chance for the media to analyze the roster before it’s cut down to 53 players next week.
So if you want a final look at the team vicariously, be sure to follow along in this article. We’ll embed a Twitter list so you can get up-to-the-second news from Lions beat writers. But you’ll also get a chance to watch live and make your own observations, as the Lions will live stream the first portion of that practice. We’ll embed that video when it goes live.
So enjoy the dying days of training camp as we all get ready for the regular season.
