Detroit Lions: Training camp Day 2

ALLEN PARK — Carmen Messina (thigh), Ronnell Lewis, Leroy Harris (knee) and Devin Thomas did not practice on Saturday. Louis Delmas, wearing a brace on his left knee, also did not practice. It was part of the precautionary plan to try to keep his knee healthy. ... Sunday’s practice will be in full pads. ... Coach Jim Schwartz was clearly distracted at the end of his post-camp press conference. Said he couldn’t keep his eyes off the photo shoot with Havard Rugland, aka Kickalicious. ... Jason Fox and Rodney Austin saw most of the first-team reps at right tackle and right guard respectively. On Friday it was Corey Hilliard and Dylan Gandy. Looks like it’s a situation that will be rotated through camp. ... Again Willie Young started with the first team at defensive end, but Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah saw time at that spot while the offense was working the run game. ... Undrafted rookie tight end Joe Fauria continues to make plays. He’s definitely a standout at 6-foot-7. ... Wide receiver Chaz Schilens, who signed this week, was a standout catching the ball on the second day of camp.
