One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Lions to keep just three backs?

The Lions are in the process of cutting players right now, but one player who already got the bad news is running back Artose Pinner. That means the Lions are likely going with three backs this year, starter Kevin Smith, backup Tatum Bell and return man Aveion Cason. Brian Calhoun is likely on the chopping block, too, and with Cason hurt (ankle) it's possible the Lions could scour the free-agent wire for another runner.

The Lions have until 6 p.m. to get down to the 53-man roster limit. Their moves are expected to be embargoed when they are announced later this morning, but we'll bring you a full update as soon as possible.

Maybe Alexander is worth a look, or Rudi Johnson once he gets cut? Cause if Kevin Smith goes down and Felton can't run the ball 4-5 times a game, well, yikes!! BTW, who's gonna catch the ball on third down?? Cason??, I hope not!!

i was REALLY hoping they'd keep pinner since it's pretty much him and smith only who do whatever they have to do to make something out of nothing. would rather have smith, pinner, and bell, in that order, on the team. hopefully pinner goes to the squad.

glad the lions decided to keep ramzee this time around and cut dovonte edwards. that's 2 down 20 more to go.

go lions! at least 8-8 this year!
