The Detroit Lions might be without a few of their starters for Friday’s preseason opener, but offensive coordinator Scott Linehan doesn’t plan on folding his tents in fear of the Cincinnati Bengals.

You can’t accuse the Detroit Lions organization of holding a grudge.

Matt Millen, who held the job title of “Detroit Lions general manager,” but executed the duties of “Sadistic Tormenter of the Detroit Lions Fan Base,” has a son-in-law who would like to play professional football. The Detroit Lions are giving him that opportunity.

Former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher still has at least one NFL rooting interest.

Fisher has been taking in some of training camp with the Detroit Lions, who are coached by Jim Schwartz, his former defensive coordinator with the Titans. Detroit also hired Fisher’s son, Brandon, this offseason to assist its defensive coaching staff.
