Calvin Johnson sits; Vanden Bosch, several others still out
ALLEN PARK — Calvin Johnson missed practice today (Monday) and had his left index finger bandaged. He said it’s no big deal. “It’s football,’’ Johnson said.
Coach Jim Schwartz said it was good to give Johnson a day off from camp because he doesn’t regulate himself, he goes all out.
It’s the same with Kyle Vanden Bosch who twisted a knee last week. He goes all out in practice usually, but has been held out and didn’t play Friday. Schwartz said Vanden Bosch is week to week.
Louis Delmas, who had surgery six days ago, watched practice from an outdoor balcony.
Missing from practice were WR Patrick Edwards (calf), RB Mikel Leshoure (hamstring), RB Jahvid Best (concussion), LB Chris Greenwood (abdomen) and DT Sammie Hill (back).
Titus Young was the standout at Monday’s practice making double moves on corners and displaying a high energy level.
He was back at work after leaving Friday morning to head to California for the birth of his son, Titus Demetrius Young Jr. Young took the red eye back, landing in Detroit this morning. So he was fighting jet lag, but still had a great camp day and celebrated by signing numerous autographs afterward. More on Titus Young later today at TheOaklandPress.com.
