1 thing we want to see from Friday’s game To say that Detroit Lions fans haven’t seen what they’ve wanted out of the preseason would be an understatement. Yes , they’ve stayed relatively healthy throughout the exhibition season (knock on wood), and that’s ultimately the most important thing, but the team has done little to inspire faith or build excitement after two convincing losses to the Giants and Raiders.But Friday presents an opportunity to put those games in the past. The third preseason game against the Buccaneers will most closely resemble a regular season game in its preparation , game-planning and talent on the field. While we don’t know how long the starters will be out there, chances are pretty good it’ll be around a full half. So today’s Question of the Day is:What is one thing you want to see from the Lions on Friday night?My answer: I’m going to keep it very simple for both sides of the ball. I want to see a first-team touchdown on offense. I don’t care how they get it. I don’t care if it’s a running play or a passing play. I just want to see a sustained drive from Matthew Stafford against the Buccaneers that ends in six. On defense, my answer is even more simple: a sack. I’m not panicking over Detroit being the only team without a sack this preseason Color Rush Sylvester Williams Jersey , but isn’t that also the least surprising fact to learn about this team right now? I need someone—preferably Devon Kennard or Ezekiel Ansah—to get to Jameis Winston and take him down for a loss. Even if it’s only one, it’ll be nice to get that microscopic monkey off the team’s back. Your turn.Tweets from Shead sits out of Wednesday’s practice Detroit Lions cornerback DeShawn Shead did not participate in the team’s practice on Wednesday. He was spotted working with a trainer on an undisclosed injury. This comes following a variety of moves the Lions made in the secondary the past couple of days, including the additions of safety Marcus Cromartie and cornerback Sterling Moore. This is the first time that Shead has sat out of practice following Detroit’s preseason game against the New York Giants last Friday where he did not play a single snap.The race for the Lions CB2 role has been heating up in recent weeks. Incumbent Nevin Lawson has been seeing a majority of the first team reps in practice and has been listed as a starter in both of the team’s opening games. Shead was signed by the Lions last spring on a one-year deal worth just over $3 million and has been competing with Lawson and former second-round pick Teez Tabor for playing time across from Darius Slay. The corner has suffered from injuries in the past as well. He was a member of the Super Bowl winning Seattle Seahawks secondary that earned the “Legion of Boom” moniker and was a regular starter in Seattle until he tore his ACL in the divisional round of the 2016 playoffs. He spent much of the 2017 season on the physically unable to perform list before being released by Seattle this past March. While we still do not know the severity and cause of Shead’s injury , this could prove to be a blow to his chances to be named the Day 1 starter in the upcoming season. With the Lions clearly set on bringing in more talent to compete for a roster spot and Shead still not having shown that he can be a regular contributor this season, his roster spot may also be in jeopardy. Guard T.J. Lang, wide receiver Jace Billingsley and defensive tackle Toby Johnson also did not participate on Wednesday.
