Bills vs. Lions 2014 practice report: Kyle Williams, Nigel Bradham injuries bear watching

The Buffalo Bills began their Detroit Lions prep work without two key defensive starters on the field - and there are no clear indications either way regarding their availability for Sunday. Two key Buffalo Bills starters on defense missed practice on Wednesday as the team began preparations for Sunday's road game against the Detroit Lions. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who left last week's loss to Houston early with a knee injury, was a non-participant today, though several reporters did spot him walking around the facility. Buffalo would clearly love to have arguably their most...

Know the NFC North: Week 4

A roundup of how the NFC North performed in Week 4 of the season. NFC North standings Detroit Lions: 3-1 Green Bay Packers: 2-2 Minnesota Vikings: 2-2 Chicago Bears: 2-2 Green Bay Packers Last week: 38-17 win at the Chicago Bears Apparently, reports announcing the death of the Packers offense have been greatly exaggerated. A week after Aaron Rodgers told fans to relax about the struggling Packers offense, the team hung 38 on their neighbors to the south for an easy victory. The game was fantastic for the first half, with both offenses moving the ball in chunks and answering each other blow...

Lions notes: Sam Martin, DeAndre Levy, more

Lions notes looks at Sam Martin, DeAndre Levy and much more. Sam Martin is off to a great start this season. P Sam Martin ranks 2nd in gross punting avg (50.1), 10th in net punting avg (42.3) and 7th in kickoff touchback % (77.8). He's a weapon. — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) September 30, 2014 It turns out that Martin actually got some kickoff advice from Jason Hanson, and it definitely seems to be paying off. DeAndre Levy is also off to a great start this season. LB DeAndre Levy is tied for sixth in the @NFL with 38 tackles and tied for third among LBs with 3 pass breakups....

Bills vs. Lions, NFL Week 5 2014: news, notes, updates, & preview

Sitting at 2-2 and tied for first place in the AFC East at the quarter-season mark, the Buffalo Bills are turning to quarterback Kyle Orton in an effort to end a two-game skid and re-discover the formula that had them at 2-0 after two weeks. They begin that quest with a tough road test against the talented, 3-1 Detroit Lions. The Buffalo Bills have made a change at the quarterback position. Doug Marrone announced at his Monday afternoon press conference that veteran Kyle Orton will start the Bills' Week 5 contest against the Detroit Lions, where he'll replace second-year quarterback EJ...

Lions place Montell Owens on injured reserve

Lions place Montell Owens on injured reserve

The Detroit Lions have cleared room for George Winn by putting Montell Owens on injured reserve. Fullback Montell Owens' season has come to an end. In order to make room for running back George Winn, who was promoted from the practice squad earlier on Tuesday, the Detroit Lions decided to place Owens on injured reserve. Owens has had a tough time staying on the field in his two seasons with the Lions. Last year, he made one single appearance in between stints on injured reserve, and this year he only managed to play in three games thanks to a hamstring injury. He was brought in to be a...

Breaking down the call: Was Jeremy Ross interfered with on punt?

Breaking down the call: Was Jeremy Ross interfered with on punt?

A deeper look into the strange punt that bounced off a New York Jets player's helmet and what the ruling should have been. A strange-looking play occurred early in the second quarter of the Detroit Lions' game against the New York Jets on Sunday. As Jeremy Ross approached to receive a punt from Ryan Quigley, the ball suddenly deflected off of a Jets player's helmet and bounced all the way to the Lions 15-yard line, where the referees originally spotted the ball. However, after the commercial break, the Lions started with the ball at their own 31-yard line. So what exactly happened? There...

Lions promote George Winn from practice squad

Lions promote George Winn from practice squad

In need of help at running back, the Detroit Lions have signed George Winn from their practice squad. By the end of Sunday's game against the New York Jets, the Detroit Lions were down to only Reggie Bush at running back. Joique Bell suffered an apparent concussion, and Theo Riddick and Montell Owens both left with hamstring injuries. Aside from Bush, fullback Jed Collins was really the only other option in the backfield if the Lions wanted to run the ball. It was not a good situation, to say the least. In order to make sure they're not in a similar situation this week, the Lions have...

How Lions' future opponents fared in Week 4

A look at how the Detroit Lions' future opponents performed in Week 4 of the season. In Week 4, the Detroit Lions' future opponents combined to go 5-6. Here's a look at how each team performed: Week 5 - vs. Bills (2-2) - lost to Texans, 23-17 Buffalo jumped out to an early 10-0 lead, but it didn't hold up. The Bills lost their lead in the third quarter when J.J. Watt intercepted E.J. Manuel and went 80 yards for a touchdown. Manuel rebounded later with an 80-yard touchdown pass to Mike Williams to make this a 3-point game, but he was picked off again with around a minute left in the fourth...
Lions notes: LaAdrian Waddle to return this week?

Lions notes: LaAdrian Waddle to return this week?

Lions notes looks at the latest on LaAdrian Waddle, the football/baseball doubleheader in Detroit on Sunday and much more. It sounds like LaAdrian Waddle may return to action for the Detroit Lions this week: Waddle said he was really close to playing last week but they decided to hold off another week. Says he feels good and expects to play Sun. — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) September 29, 2014 The Lions have really struggled at right tackle with Waddle and Corey Hilliard both getting hurt in Week 1, so getting Waddle back would be a huge boost for the offensive line. Here's some more...

Jim Caldwell's quotes from Monday

A recap of Jim Caldwell's comments from Monday. Below is a look at what Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell had to say on Monday. (Quotes provided by the Lions.) Opening Statement: "After we had a chance to review the film and take a good look at it, obviously we did a lot of things well. I do think there were some big plays that were made down the stretch that were important. Particularly, Golden (Tate) with that 90-yard drive with the catch he had to get us the initial first down to get it started. And then kind of finishing it up when he caught the little pass at the line of...

How did Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria suffer an ankle injury? On Monday, he explained what happened. As soon as news broke last week that Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria suffered an ankle injury at his home, there was a lot of speculation about what happened. Did the accident involve his dog? Was he intoxicated? Did he get hurt playing volleyball? Those were just some of the rumors that were swirling around. On Monday, Fauria explained what exactly happened, and it turns out that his dog was involved in the situation. Joe Fauria said he sprained his ankle after missing bottom...

Lions approval poll: Jim Caldwell (September 2014)

Do you approve of the job Jim Caldwell is doing as head coach of the Detroit Lions? Vote now. We're one-fourth of the way through the 2014 regular season. The Detroit Lions are 3-1, and they're in sole possession of first place in the NFC North.

With that in mind, it's time for yet another Caldwell approval poll. This is the first one with regular-season games to consider, as the past two took place in June and...
Lions notes: More on Sunday's win over Jets

Lions notes: More on Sunday's win over Jets

Lions notes looks at various tidbits from Sunday's win over the New York Jets. On the game-clinching naked bootleg, Matthew Stafford apparently called his own number. Reggie Bush said Matt Stafford's bootleg for a first down late was Stafford's call. Something offense worked on all week, but QB decision. — Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) September 28, 2014 The return of James Ihedigbo allowed the Detroit Lions to be a bit more flexible with their secondary. Lions using Glover Quin in the slot early. Ihedigbo and Abdul-Quddus on at same time. — Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein)...
