5 standouts from Saturday’s Lions scrimmage

5 standouts from Saturday’s Lions scrimmage

Kerry Hyder, among others, impress during the Lions’ first scrimmage of training camp. Nevin Lawson The battle for the No. 2 cornerback position has been a huge talking point this offseason and throughout training camp, and it appears some have forgotten about Lawson with Teez Tabor and DeShawn Shead receiving some praise as of late. However, don’t forget about Lawson, who is still in the thick of it, and is trying to rebound from a disappointing season last year.

Lions 2018 roster predictions: Bubble Watch Week 1

Lions 2018 roster predictions: Bubble Watch Week 1

A look at which players on the roster bubble made an impact after one week of training camp. After a week of training camp, it seems like we already know a lot more about the Detroit Lions roster. DeShawn Shead, once considered a depth signing, appears to be the leading candidate for the No. 2 cornerback job. Similarly, Alex Barrett has emerged as a power player in the Lions’ edge rusher depth chart. So with that in mind, our Pride of Detroit staff—including our newbies—gave their best guesses at which players are the bubble will and will not make the team. New to bubble watch:...

MathBomb camp observations: DeShawn Shead winning CB2 cleanly

MathBomb camp observations: DeShawn Shead winning CB2 cleanly

The No. 2 corner battle was one to watch entering camp, but it already appears settled pretty handily. The pads are on and players are hitting each other, bringing us one step closer to the regular season debut of these Detroit Lions. The morning was hot, sometimes unbearably so, but it didn’t prevent Matt Patricia from pushing his players to the very edge and once they’d arrive, push them even further. It was interesting seeing a new approach to training camp. There was an approach for efficiency with Jim Caldwell’s camps but Patricia appears to favor fundamentals and pace. While...

Marvin Jones returns to practice in full, LeGarrette Blount leaves late

Marvin Jones returns to practice in full, LeGarrette Blount leaves late

The Detroit Lions survived their first scare of the 2018 training camp season. Saturday morning, wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. went down on the field after colliding with cornerback DeShawn Shead on a deep pass. Jones stayed down on the ground for a while, and sat out the remaining portion of practice. But on Sunday, when the team took the field for their first padded practice, Jones was right out there with them, practicing in full beside his teammates. “He’s good, he’s fine,” head coach Matt Patricia said before Sunday’s practice. “We’re always a little bit cautious the...

Lions WR Marvin Jones Jr. injures leg during practice, says ‘I’m good’

It’s unknown how serious Jones’ injury is, but he didn’t not return to practice. As the Detroit Lions closed Day 2 of training camp with full team drills, Marvin Jones Jr. appeared to injury himself on one of the first plays of the segment. Going up for a deep ball against cornerback DeShawn Shead, Jones came down with the ball in the end zone, but got tangled up with the corner and starting clutching his left leg. He stayed down on the field for about a minute, before walking very gingerly to the sideline with a trainer. For the remaining 15 minutes of practice, Jones was next to the...

Day 1 camp observations: DeShawn Shead starts as CB2, LBs off to a good start

Day 1 camp observations: DeShawn Shead starts as CB2, LBs off to a good start

There were a few surprises on Day 1 of Lions training camp. The Detroit Lions kicked off training camp on Friday morning to a good crowd of reportedly 1,500 season-ticket holders. Things got off to a modest start on an chilly, overcast morning, but by the end of practice, the crowd was energized and the sun even made a late appearance. Here are my camp observations from Day 1. Injury updates Cornelius Washington, Ezekiel Ansah and Devon Kennard were all sidelined due to various issues. Head coach Matt Patricia did not expand on what issues were ailing them prior to practice. Washington...
