Position Battles Rage on
There are a number of positions still up for grabs. The quarterback position is still under consideration as far as keeping one or two backups so the battle between Dan Orlovsky and Rookie Jake Rudock will have meaning this week. Orlovsky went 16-25 for 164 yards and a 79.4 rating while Rudock went 8-11 for 72 yards and a rating of 120.3
The third and fourth string running back position is still up for grabs with Joique Bell the starter, Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner continue to battle. Zenner led the way last week with seven rushes for 24 yards, Riddick rushed for 20 yards on four carries.

According the Ndamukong Suh’s personal trainer Mike Barwis, when Suh hits the field for training camp, he will be a “physical specimen.”
“Ndamukong is a stud,” said Barwis, “… He trains very, very hard. Guys finish up the workouts, and he’s the guy in there who stays extra to condition beyond what’s demanded of him, and these workouts are pretty hellacious. A guy like that is a pretty unique guy. … He knows what he has to do to be ready, and I think he’s proven that every year he’s been ready.”
The Lions open the Preseason against the Cleveland Browns on August 9th. Plenty of great seats and cheap tickets still remain! Get yours today!!
The Detroit lions played a great game against the Bengals but came up on the short end of a 27-24 loss. The setback puts the Lions at 4-3.
Next up for Detroit are the Dallas Cowboys and the key matchup in that contest will be rookie center Travis Frederick against defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
One player Lions Coach Jim Schwartz will be keeping his eyes on is Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant.
“And I think that Dez Bryant in particular has really improved over the course of his career. We saw him as a really young player a few years ago. He’s playing like a veteran player now. He’s taken the load of the No. 1 receiver. That’s a big burden to be the No. 1 receiver. You’re going to see attention every week. You’re going to see double teams. You’re going to see corners rolled to your side and it’s a big mental adjustment to go through that and I think that Dez Bryant has done that. He’s made big plays for them. He’s always been a really strong player, but you just see him maturing as a player and I think that’s good for the NFL when you see young players improve like he has.
Great seats/tickets are still available for this NFC Matchup.
