Quintez Cephus has impressed during the offseason
Back in June, during OTAs, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Quintez Cephus shows up in competitive environments.
He doing what we asked him to do and, last year kind of like put him in a competitive environment. All of sudden, he shows up, and, that’s when you really feel him, and yesterday we get one of those competitive environments and who showed up again,” Campbell said Wednesday of Cephus.
“So we don’t ignore those things. I don’t ignore them you know, so it was good to see out of him. We thought he did well. He just he shows up. He shows up in these competitive settings that’s a good thing.”
“It sucked, honestly, not being able to be out here and do what I love to do,” Cephus said Wednesday of the injury last year. “Got off to a great start and just wanted to take advantage of my opportunities and it ended shorter than I wanted it to.”
