Details of Saturday's open scrimmage were in the paper today, but I'll the post the info here for our Internet readers:
It's a controlled scrimmage first, but it should be interesting to see backup quarterbacks Dan Orlovsky and Drew Stanton plus rookies Gosder Cherilus, Kevin Smith and others in the closest thing they'll see to live action before next week's preseason opener.
"Black and Blue Fan Day" is at the Lions Allen Park facility, just off Southfield Freeway. Gates open at 2 p.m., practice starts at 3:30 p.m., and admission is free but you need a ticket to get in. Tickets can be obtained at Wireless GIANT stores in the Detroit area starting at noon on Thursday.
Just a note, in the event of inclement weather, the practice will be moved inside and closed to the public. For more information, visit DetroitLions.com or call the team's training camp hotline at 313-262-2882.
