TIM AND MIKE: Training camp Day 14 observations

Increased load: Defensive end Trey Flowers was removed from PUP Saturday, though he only took individual reps in practice. Sunday he did a little more, taking part in 1-on-1 pass-rush drills vs. the O-line. Flowers had a great rep rushing inside on guard Graham Glasgow. Flowers showed off terrific strength getting hands on Glasgow, getting the big guard unbalanced on his way by him. –Tim Twentyman

Close call: Rookie tight end Isaac Nauta almost came down with a leaping catch, but the ball came loose as he tumbled backward. Instead of a catch, Nauta and his teammates on offense had to pay the penalty of doing 10 pushups. – Mike O’Hara

Hand delivery: Safety Andrew Adams picked off a ball from quarterback Josh Johnson that was too high for tight end T.J. Hockenson in a four-minute team period. After briefly celebrating with his teammates, Adams sprinted over to head coach Matt Patricia, who was watching from his ATV 15 yards or so behind the offense, and hand delivered the football to him. Patricia set it on the front of his ATV. – Tim Twentyman

Back to back: The offense got off two good plays in a short span. First wide receiver Kenny Golladay got a nice gain when he found a seam in the secondary on a sharp cut from left to right. A couple plays later wide receiver Chris Lacy made a good catch down the right sideline. – Mike O’Hara

Finger wag: Cornerback Darius Slay’s go-to move after defending a pass is the finger wag. Lions receivers know it’s not just a gameday move for Slay. He’ll bring it out on the practice field too. Rookie wide receiver Travis Fulgham got the finger wag Sunday when Slay was able to knock away a pass from him deep down the right sideline. – Tim Twentyman

Four-minute special: The offense was running the four-minute drill, when it tries to sustain a drive to run out the clock. It got more than it might have bargained for when Fulgham made a good catch down the left sideline for a long gain. – Mike O’Hara

Animated practice: The offense was pretty animated Sunday whooping and hollering at every good play made by their unit. It looked to have an impact on the defense, too, because by the end of practice the defense was getting pretty vocal and cheering for every good play by their unit. There was some back and forth for a while in a team period, and players on both sides seemed to be having fun with it. – Tim Twentyman
