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.

Jeff Backus is back.

The Detroit Lions activated their starting left tackle off the active/non-football injury list today, and Backus took part in his first practice of training camp.

Jahvid Best said he felt a little “woozy.”

He’s not alone. His possible concussion on the Lions’ first play from scrimmage Friday night in Cleveland inspired more than a few wobbling knees. There must be legitimate concerns now that Best is developing the same injury-prone reputation as quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Anyway, what are we to make of our pet cats, the Lions? After two exhibition games I honestly have as many questions as answers.

It’s been widely reported that LT Jeff Backus has returned to practice. This is a good thing, right?
