The Lions began on-the-field preparations for Buffalo on Wednesday the same way they did for the Jets last week – without All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson on the practice field.
The players are different, but the defense Jim Schwartz runs as the Bills’ defensive coordinator is something the Lions practiced against in Schwartz’s tenure as head coach.
Tim Twentyman covers all the news from Wednesday's practice including George Winn's roster promotion, Calvin Johnson's injury update and more.
The first quarter of the season is in the books and the Lions sit atop the NFC North with a 3-1 record. There’s still a lot of season to go, but what have we learned so far about the four teams in the division?
