Scanning the Savanna

Scanning the Savanna is a daily feature that brings fresh Detroit Lions and NFL related content to your fingertips each morning. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s scan the savanna together.


Matthew Stafford’s first two seasons with the Detroit Lions can be viewed more as a series of snapshots, not a film. It’s a panorama of hope spliced with a lot of agony — and a few cuts of brilliance.


Lions right tackle Gosder Cherilus was held out of practice for precautionary reasons as he continues his recovery from microfracture knee surgery. Donald Thomas took the first-team reps at right tackle in Cherilus’ place.



The Detroit Lions are opening Tuesday and Wednesday’s training camp practices to the public.
Today, be awed by the power of the blue flame. Marvel at the swell of support from across the nation. Read the reports of training camp practices (real practices!) like a kid who found their parents’ Christmas shopping list. Cherish every moment of this Lions season that you can, because it will be be one we’ll want to remember forever.
