Update: With the signing of Teddy Bridgewater, he replaces Nate Sudfeld.
Rookie Hendon Hooker has looked good working after practice during camp, but he is still a strong candidate to open the season on the PUP list or I.R. The Lions could consider carrying a third experienced quarterback on the 53 heading into the season, but here and now two is the number that make it.
Running Backs (6)
Jason Cabinda (FB)
The question marks are keeping Cabinda, who doesn't have much of an on-field role as a fullback, how the battle for the No. 3 running backs spot shakes out and how many of those competitors are kept. I've got Jackson, Reynolds and Jefferson on the 53 right now. Jefferson has re-established himself on the radar for a roster spot.
Wide Receivers (6)
Amon-Ra St. Brown
With Williams starting the season with a six-game suspension, there's an opening for someone here on the 53-man roster. Drummond, the undrafted rookie out of Eastern Michigan, is making a strong case for that spot so far in training camp. He will be a player to watch againstt the Giants on Friday night, as will Mims.
Tight Ends (3)
The major knee injury to Shane Zylstra took the juice out of this camp battle, and leaves the clear-cut three here.
Offensive Line (9)
Glasgow appears to have the early edge for the starting job at right guard over Vaitai, which would move "Big V" into a role as a veteran who can play guard and tackle.
