Calvin Johnson at practice; Jacob Lacey still out

Posted by ttwentyman on October 25, 2012 – 3:23 pm

Because of their game Monday night at Chicago, there were some adjustments made to the Lions’ practice schedule. The team did not practice on Wednesday as head coach Jim Schwartz chose to instead have a walk through for what he called “a mental day.”

“There’s a lot of different reasons to do it and I think the players will be a little fresher as a result,” Schwartz said.

Today, the team was back on the field in the afternoon,  and relatively healthy considering this is Week 8.

Receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) and cornerback Bill Bentley (shoulder) participated in the portion of practice open to the media.

Four players sat out, including: Defensive end Cliff Avril (back), cornerback Jacob Lacey (concussion), safety Amari Spievey (concussion) and linebacker DeAndre Levy (hamstring).

    I just hope no one gets a hang nail and put on PUP, someone needs to light a fire under these guys, Stafford looks like a bust.

    Word of advise for any QB for the lions……….Learn to run and run fast.

    Never know what team will show up with the Lions, They have won 1 Playoff game since 1964?????

    Dean, I tend to agree with you. Stafford right now is looking like a bust and reminding more of Scott Mitchell as time goes on. That really leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I think they should consider getting better strenght and conditioning coaches along with a better sports therapist. To many injuries all the time. Offense needs to get their butts out of this funk they are in and start to make plays, that is if Linehan can his butt out of his funk. Same old offensive Sunday after Sunday nothing new at all. So true you never know what team will show up. Sad only won, one playoff game since 1964, I remember I was 10.

    Thats not quite true of Stafford. If you remember Scott Mitchell had a hell of a year and then followed it up being very gun shy and making terrible decisions. I think the funk goes all on the coaching. That and our receivers inability to catch the ball. Look at the slant Calvin ran in the first half. Wide open and the ball hit him in the hand and was dropped. Calvin was wide open and could be alot more running slants with Calvin and Titus with the Tight ends pushing deep to the outside. Remember when Jerry Rice started getting shut down on the outside San Fran started throwing over the middle to him with huge success.

    Think about next year!!! Surely Everette Brown would be good to have over seldom used players like Kevin Smith, Jason Fox, Corey Hilliard, Will Heller, Kellen Moore. KVB next year? Lo Jack? Avril?(Big Money? and what happened to Willie Young? also the secondary is a mess, Eddie Pleasant, on the Texans practice squad ( Idon’t know what it would cost) but he fits the lions D. Also speed back Michael Smith (rookie on Tampa, maybe trade?

    Nice resigning of Alphonso Smith by the way. And good pick up of Brian Robiski

    I cant believe the owner let this Lions team be a mess all these years we all know now that he bought this team for bussiness needs only to make more money to invest into his cars. He is not a fan of football like Jerry Jones and he owns all the oil in texas and still takes care of his team thumbs up for a owner who cares about his fans.
