Former Detroit Lions quarterback Joey Harrington was discharged on Wednesday from a Portland hospital, where he was treated following a bike accident over the weekend.

Just a week ago, it looked like the linebacker position could be a weak link for Detroit. The addition of Carpenter – along with the acquisition of Stephen Tulloch, Justin Durant and fifth-round draft pick Doug Hogue – has flipped the script. While it remains to be seen if it will be a position of strength, the depth is there.

Chris Houston landed back in Detroit, and he has no problem with it.

Houston agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Detroit Lions earlier in the week, and he was in a good mood Wednesday morning when he reported to the team’s headquarters.

On Friday, former Lions offensive lineman Mike Utley plans to swing by training camp in Allen Park. That visit, though, will follow today’s scheduled stop in Kalamazoo, where he’ll give the keynote speech at a breakfast before the U.S. Tennis Association Boys’ 18 and 16 National Championships.
