In case you have not yet heard, the Detroit Lions held a practice on Monday that we have never seen before in Allen Park.
According to reports, the Lions held a ‘coachless' practice on Monday and only head coach Dan Campbell was even around to watch silently as the players ran the show.
Following the practice, Lions' OT Taylor Decker spoke to reporters and he said it was a good practice.
“(Campbell) told us this morning that the players were going to go out there and run their own practice, here's the team scenarios we want to get done and you guys are going to go out there and run the show,” veteran left tackle Taylor Decker said after practice. “I think it's awesome to do, because honestly on gameday we are out there and have to communicate. It was good. Unique. I've never done that before. It was good work.”
