Back to basics
ALLEN PARK This bye week comes at a good time for the banged-up Lions. In fact, coach Jim Schwartz said today that the Lions will not practice on Wednesday because hes not sure he would have enough healthy bodies to run a full practice. They wont waste the day though. Theyll have a walk-through and meetings. They will practice Thursday and Friday before getting a three-day weekend breather.
The Lions play the St. Louis Rams at home on Nov. 1. While the coaches will study the Rams this week, the team will not be fed any Rams information. Instead they will be getting back to basics and try to correct the mistakes that have gotten them off to a 1-5 start.
