ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- As if the situation in the secondary wasn't bad enough, the Detroit Lions are now facing similar concerns on the offensive line. In both cases, an opening-game injury is to blame. Corey Hilliard, who played most of Monday's 35-14 victory over the New York Giants at right tackle, will miss the rest of the season because of a foot injury. The Lions confirmed...

  The Detroit Lions announced Wednesday that they have signed veteran OT Garrett Reynolds to a contract. This comes after reports mentioned that backup right tackle Corey Hilliard could be out for the season.

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...

Lions Training Camp: 5 Key Position Battles

Excitement is building in Allen Park, as the Detroit Lions are getting ready to report to training camp on Sunday July 27th . The Lions are lucky that they have a pretty good understanding of who all of the starters will be heading into camp, which is nice because it will take the team some time to gel with Jim Caldwell’s new playbook.

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...

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: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#9)

Almost every year, one team goes from out of the playoffs to a 1st round bye. I picked Carolina to do so before the season and I’m sticking with that right now, but with Carolina losing a tough game and the way Detroit played week 1, the Lions appear to have thrown their hat in the ring, as did the Saints. The Lions could have easily won by more if it wasn’t for stupid mistakes...

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...
