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.


Three to watch

The Redskins will provide a hefty challenge to the 0-2 Lions who desperately seek their first win in 20 games. On Sunday keep an eye on three players:

Rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford who continues to improve, but needs to throw more touchdowns than interceptions. His confidence remains high, but the Redskins’ defense could give the kid a headache or two.

Rookie linebacker Deandre Levy who is expected to start at left outside linebacker for the injured Ernie Sims (shoulder). Coach Jim Schwartz said he has practiced well all week but the only thing that matters is if he can translate that onto the field.

Running back Kevin Smith who had a good game against the Vikings but is nowhere close to being satisfied. Getting the running game going is essential if the Lions want to win and Smith carries the bulk of that load.
