Here's all the latest news from around the internet regarding the Detroit Lions for Thursday, July 5.

  • Certainly, one of the Lions' keys to success this season will be the health of the running game. Jahvid Best is determined to return healthy and give opposing defenses plenty to think about, writes Carlos Monarrez. —Detroit Free Press
  • Which players are most important to the Lions' cause in the 2012 season? Mlive's Justin Rogers has players 6-10 on his top 25 countdown ready to go. —Mlive.com
  • Defensive tackle Nick Fairley is hosting a kickball tournament this weekend in Dearborn Heights. Fairley and four other NFL players will participate in the event and then sign autographs afterwards. —Detroit Free Press
  • As if you wanted to hear more about it, here's additional information regarding the offseason from hell. Lions' linebacker Justin Durant participated in a chat at Freep.com and admitted his teammates have been "terrible at decision making" during the offseason. There's an understatement. —Pro Football Talk
  • Speaking of the terrible offseason, in case you missed it, former Lions' cornerback Eric Wright was arrested under suspicion of a DUI. Since he left Detroit as a free agent for Tampa Bay, we can't really count him as a problem child this offseason. Still, that's one more player with Lion ties doing bad things. —Detroit Free Press
