No Bentley or Lacey at practice; Greenwood practices for first time

Posted by ttwentyman on October 17, 2012 – 3:11 pm

The Lions were afforded an extra day of practice today by means of their upcoming Monday night game against the Bears.

Cornerbacks Bill Bentley (shoulder) and Jacob Lacey (concussion) did not participate in the portion of practice open to the media, though. Both were injured in Sunday’s victory in Philadelphia and did not finish the game.

Also sitting out practice Wednesday were: defensive end Cliff Avril, defensive tackle Corey Williams, linebacker DeAndre Levy and receiver Nate Burleson. Avril, Levy and Burleson all finished the game Sunday.

The Lions will not have an injury report today because they play on Monday night, which means we’ll have to wait another day to get word on the extent of some of these injuries.

As expected, rookie cornerback Chris Greenwood was back on the practice field after missing the first six weeks while on the PUP list for an abdominal tear.

    We need to use those young CBs and see if they have any talent. I did see Delmas make a difference in the last game, Sorry Louis! Also, I am glad to see that Linehan took my many suggestions of placing an additional Blocker on Matt Stafford’s blind side! You are welcome Scott. Now, next I would like to see some consistency out of the WRs other than CJ. CATCH THE BALL! And YEAH, that includes you Scheffler! Man and I was saying how “sure handed” you were! Also, another big opportunity for YOUNG last game, and guess what, HE DROPPED THE BALL!
    Is anyone else waiting for SUH to start blowing people off the ball and Manhandling the opposing QBs??? Come on SUH, you can’t let a few cry babies like Green Bay has ruin your game man! YOU HAVE TO WANT TO BE GREAT, TO BE GREAT! ASK the incomparable Michael Jordan, or BETTER YET BARRY!

    Both Bears fans and players talking a lot of trash on how they are going to walk over Lions on Monday night. Their offense( quarterback and wide receivers) are much better than the lions… and their defensive line is much better than Lions. Their so full of themselves they are ripe for the picking. Coach Scott needs to put on a clinic on how to handle Lovie’s Tampa Two defense. 9 out of 10 times if their not running 2 deep safeties and one is near the line they are going to blitz and the hot read is the tight end as you know. This is a good time to take advantage of Urlacher’s bad knees on short crossing routes or deep in the middle.

    I feel where you are coming from where it comes to Young. The thing that surprised me was the fact that DRC was the guy that was on coverage on the aformentioned dropped pass. DRC is touted as one of the faster CB’s in the league and Young just blew right tby him and there was no amount of catch up speed that could catch Young. I think the kid has a lot of promise and consistency will come. I didnt know he had wheels like that though.

    Suh, he’s blowing alright, just not anyone off the ball, Philly must have gotten lulled to sleep with the refs calling all those penalty’s on Detwa. If I were detroit, I wouldn’t be braggin about how well they played last week, I chalked this one up to Philly playing down to detroits low talent. The offence was absolutely horrid before the 4th, yes they won, but really? Chicago will be the true test of how “good” detroit is and how bad they want to get back on the band waggin and show they are a decent team. If I was in Vegas, I would put all my money on Chicago.
