The Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars will open up a pair of joint practices on Wednesday morning at Allen Park. For the Lions, it’s another opportunity to mix things up and keep things fresh after a couple weeks of in-house practices and a pair of sessions with the New York Giants last week.
The Jaguars boast an impressive set of skills position players on offense—and a potential franchise quarterback—that should provide the Lions newly-upgraded defense a challenge all week. They’ve also got a set of pass rushers that should give Penei Sewell and Taylor Decker a nice challenge.
With fans in attendance on Wednesday, media members will be permitted to live-tweet practice. The fun should start around 10:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday morning, with Thursday’s practices beginning at the same time.
To help keep you updated to the second on Wednesday’s practice, below are two Twitter lists—one of the Lions writers and one for the Jaguars writers—that will provide live updates.
Two important caveats:
- Because of Twitter’s new policies, these Twitter lists will not be automatically updating on this page. You will need to click through them and have them opened on your browser on Twitter.
- I’ve been told that there are not a ton of Jaguars media members in attendance for these practices, so updates from Jacksonville’s point of view may be limited this week
If you want to help out your fellow Lions fans, feel free to share any significant tweets you see in the comment section at the bottom of the page.
After practice, we’ll offer up our own observations with a post-practice podcast and an observations post from Erik Schlitt.
