Lions Training Camp Wraps Up For 2011

The Detroit Lions held their final practice of training camp for 2011 on Thursday. The team will return to the practice field next week to get ready for their final preseason game, and after that they will start practicing to get ready for the regular season. Technically training camp is now over, though.

On the final day of camp the Lions got wide receiver Calvin Johnson back. He had missed a couple days earlier in the week because of a shoulder injury, but he was back on Thursday.

The same can't be said for defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch. He was out again due to a shoulder injury. He hasn't practiced all week and won't be playing against the New England Patriots on Saturday as a result.

Running back Jahvid Best also likely won't play on Saturday despite practicing for the second day in a row. The Lions don't want to rush him back into a preseason game just a week after suffering a concussion, but he was able to practice since there was no contact.

Wide receiver Titus Young is looking more and more likely to play after practicing again on Thursday.
