Lions still don't have starting right tackle with less than 2 weeks until opener

The Detroit Lions return 10 starters on offense, and nine more on defense. They are a veteran team, and most starting positions are established. But 12 days before the season opener, Detroit still doesn't have a starting right tackle. LaAdrian Waddle started seven of the final eight games of last season at the position and was considered the favorite to reclaim those duties...

Lions' starting job at right tackle too close to call

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The starting job at right tackle appears to be too close to call going into the final preseason game for the Detroit Lions. LaAdrian Waddle came out of nowhere as an undrafted rookie last year to make eight starts, but Corey Hilliard, entering his sixth season in the league, made seven starts despite injuries. Hilliard started the third preseason game last week...

Top 10 tackles in the draft should the Detroit Lions choose to waste their first pick

There has been some speculation that the Detroit Lions would take an offensive tackle with their 10th overall pick in the upcoming draft. I would personally consider this to be a total waste. The Lions offensive line was ranked in the top third of the league, and it is a young line with potential to improve at the tackle position as they mature. With Reily Reiff and LaAdrian Waddle...

The Lions are getting thin at offensive tackle

Today OT Corey Hilliard (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against Dallas and both left tackle Riley Reiff (hamstring) and right tackle Jason Fox (knee) have been deemed questionable, although both practiced Friday for the Lions.

Detroit Lions preseason recap

When all is said and done, the preseason is not the actual season. The goal of training camp is to find out who belongs on your team, and who doesn’t.  This, of course, is all done with a major emphasis on staying healthy. The Lions were able to accomplish their preseason goal in a healthy manner, making the 2012 preseason a success in my mind.  While the team didn’t look as...
