Seems like the Lions took a step back on Thursday." Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions Training CampDetroit Lions-Houston Texans joint practice recaps http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-anthony-zettel-jersey , highlights: Rough day for LionsNew,67commentsSeems like the Lions took a step back on Thursday. EDTAfter what seemed like a mostly positive day for the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, it appears the Houston Texans struck back during the teams’ second joint-practice session on Thursday. Pride of Detroit was not on hand again for Thursday’s practice, but here are all of the notable observations from the other beat writers on hand. For full recaps, check out these sources:MLive’s Kyle Meinke: Matthew Stafford throws 2 picks in tough day for offenseFreep’s Dave Birkett: Leaders emerging for No. 4, 5 WR spots in HoustonDetroit News’ Justin Rogers: Texans intercept Matthew Stafford three timesHoustonTexans.com’s John Harris: Harris Hits: Training Camp Day 15Houston Chronicle’s John McClain: Takeaways from Day 15 of Texans campLions offense strugglesAs two Lions beat writers noted in their headlines, it sounded like it was a rough day for Matthew Stafford and company. With Marvin Jones Jr. back in Detroit and Danny Amendola taking the day off, Stafford didn’t appear to have the chemistry with his backup receivers, and it resulted in some ugly possessions. From Rogers:The news may have been worse for the Lions’ offensive line against a stout Texans defensive front Jake Rudock Jersey White , especially for right tackle Rick Wagner:Yikes.Patricia/Watt dust upAs briefly explained in the last tweet above, Lions head coach Matt Patricia and Texans defensive end J.J. Watt got into a bit of a verbal spat. Here’s how Meinke tells the story:People love conflict during these joint practices, but it doesn’t sound like there was much here.Defense wasn’t any betterThough Detroit continues to be without a handful of their best defensive players, it seems like Thursday was a particularly rough day for the Lions defense. From Harris:Yikes. But it wasn’t all bad for the Lions’ defense. According to several Lions beat writers, Thursday was a good day for Devon Kennard—someone we haven’t heard much from in camp. “In one-on-one pass rush drills, Devon Kennard was a standout among Detroit’s defenders,” Rogers wrote. “He blew around offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson on the first rep, then easily got by guard Martinas Rankin with a swim move on a second snap, rushing from an inside alignment.”Injury updatesThough Damon Harrison Sr. was activated from the Non-Football Injury list Womens Trey Flowers Jersey , both he and Trey Flowers did not participate in any team drills. In better news, Jarrad Davis returned to practice after almost two weeks off, though he, too, did not do team drills. During practice, it appears the Lions suffered a couple injuries. Running back C.J. Anderson limped off the field at one point, but no beat writers provided any sort of update after this:Additionally, third-string offensive tackle Matt Nelson was apparently carted off late in practice, per Meinke. HighlightsIt seems like teams may have cut down on highlights from fans and media from Day 2 Womens Eli Harold Jersey , so all we have are the highly-sanitized official highlights from the Lions: It’s time for the Lions to find someone to pair with Kerryon."For as long as any Lions fan can remember, the run game has been a real weakness for the Detroit Lions. With the rise of Kerryon Johnson in his rookie year, it seems as though the organization has finally began to turn that around. But Kerryon needs help ,and that help may not be on this team already. Here is our Lions running back free agency preview:Previous position previews: Quarterback, wide receiver, tight end, offensive lineCurrently under contractKerryon JohnsonSigned through 2021$1,478,111 cap hit in 2019Theo RiddickSigned through 2019$4 http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-taylor-decker-jersey ,265,000 cap hit in 2019Mark ThompsonSigned through 2020$585,000 cap hit in 2019Kerwynn Williams Signed through 2019$645,000 cap hit in 2019Pending free agentsLeGarrette BlountZach ZennerLevel of need: 7/10Right now it’s Kerryon Johnson and bunch of guys. Sure Theo Riddick is still currently on the team, but if I had to make a guess with a gun to my head, he won’t be by the time this team goes to camp. Theo just doesn’t seem to fit the Lions anymore and losing him will will only cost the Lions $962,500. which means the Lions need to find someone to pair with Johnson in 2019. Top free agents available: Carlos Hyde - Carlos is a bit of an enigma right now. Your mind tells you that this is a guy that can come in a and make a huge difference right away based on what you saw him do in San Francisco. But he really got lost in the shuffle in 2019 on two teams that frankly had better options than him already. Still, at 28, he has something to offer. Mark Ingram - The Alvin Kamara era has taken over in New Orleans. That may mean that the Flint Womens Jarrad Davis Jersey , Michigan native will decide to look for a new home instead of staying in The Big Easy. Mark will be hard pressed to find a No. 1 role anywhere in the league at the age of 29, though. Le’Veon Bell - This is going to be an intriguing story to watch. This is a guy that was the best player at his position the last time he played it. Of course, that was back in 2017 before he decided to sit out the year to avoid being franchised for the second straight season. Le’Veon will be looking to play for a contender, but he’s also going to be looking to get paid big-time money. Best fitI beat the drum for years on the idea that the Lions were trying to recreate the New Orleans Saints’ running back by committee formula that helped the Saints go from one of the worst run games in the league to a top five unit in just one year. The Lions could just never find the right pieces. Now they have a chance to recreate the latest Saints rushing attack if they go after Mark Ingram. Ingram would be the perfect other head on what would be a two-headed monster with Kerryon Johnson. He can come in and be a bruiser while also having a lot of speed and agility. Kerryon can be the patient Le’veon Bell clone that many believe he’s already shown he can be. The conditions are perfect too. Mark can come to Michigan and finish out his career close to home where his family still lives. And in the meantime, he’ll fill a prominent role in Darrell Bevell’s offense, which is sure to have an increased focus on the running game.
