JUST IN: Detroit Lions workout former Ohio State standout

As of late, the Detroit Lions have been busy adjusting their roster.

After Marvin Jones Jr. was officially ruled OUT for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, the team announced they had promoted WR Andy Jones to the active roster.

But before making that move, the Lions reportedly worked out former Ohio State quarterback turned NFL receiver, Terrelle Pryor.

Since coming to the league, Pryor has bounced around, playing for the Raiders, Browns, Redskins, Bills, and Jets.

In 2016, the former Buckeye had a breakout season catching 77 balls for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. Unfortunately, he has not been able to do much since then, catching just 36 passes in 17 games (3 starts) since then.

Detroit Lions’ Matt Patricia fires back at media for criticizing ‘snow practice’

On Thursday, many were surprised that Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia made the decision to have his team practice in the snow. Most of the criticism was based on the fact the Lions next three games will be played at Ford Field and their fourth will be played in Arizona.

Today, Patricia spoke to the media and be began with a prepared statement about his decision to practice in the snow. It was pretty clear he was not thrilled with the media for their criticisms.

Via the Detroit Free Press:

“In regards to practice, a couple comments I just want to make on this topic and provide some maybe insight and let’s call it closure to this continual conversation that we have here as far as our training. First, we’ll always practice and train in a manner that looks out for our players’ ability to prepare each week for our opponent, while also taking care of and including all the parameters to the overall health and safety of our team. Indoor walk-throughs, which we had this week, which we’ve also had in the past, are always beneficial to our team, it’s beneficial to our players. It’s a great teaching and learning environment. It’s an opportunity for us to pull off them physically, the demands of practice and the overall hustle and pursuit of what we have to do during the course of a practice and our movements.
