As training camp finally blends into the preseason schedule, here's all the latest on the Detroit Lions from around the web for August 8, 2012
- The first big injury blow came to the Lions secondary this week, as safety Louis Delmas underwent a surgical procedure to help his ailing knee. Delmas had been feeling the effects of the knee problem since last year's Thanksgiving Day game against Green Bay. The team didn't say how severe the procedure was or give a timetable for Delmas's return. —ESPN
- In the absence of Delmas, for however long it lasts, expect to see veteran Erik Coleman and second year man Amari Spievey step up to fill the void. Each was taking first team reps at safety today in practice. —Detroit Free Press
- Friday's first preseason matchup against the Cleveland Browns will see rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden draw the start. The Browns might be without running back Trent Richardson, however, who has been sitting out practice. —Cleveland.com
- Chris Houston believes he's become a better cornerback after going up against Calvin Johnson in practice every day. Houston describes the task of covering Johnson to Dave Birkett as "hell," but knows facing his talents helps prepare him for every other receiver in the NFL. —Detroit Free Press
- Finally, Mlive's Anwar S. Richardson participated in his weekly "Ask Anwar" segment, and touched on a variety of training camp issues such as the play of Dwight Bentley, the Lions' hopes of making the playoffs and the health of Jahvid Best going forward. —Mlive
