Justin Gilbert watches Detroit Lions minicamp; Broyles works for second straight day

ALLEN PARK — Cornerback Justin Gilbert watched the final day of Lions minicamp from the sidelines today (Thursday) with Cedric Saunders, the Lions vice president of football operations.

Gilbert (Oklahoma State) is making his pre-draft visit to the practice facility. He could be a strong consideration for the Lions who have the 10th pick in the draft. 

Wide receiver Ryan Broyles was back for a second straight day of practice. He sat out Tuesday and worked for the first time on Wednesday. He is coming off surgery to repair a torn Achilles’ on Oct. 29.

Also on Thursday, right guard Larry Warford and linebacker Brandon Hepburn were not participating. The other injured players including Calvin Johnson, Joique Bell and Brandon Pettigrew were on the field but not participating.

The absentees were the same as Wednesday — Ndamukong Suh, Mikel Leshoure, Chris Houston and Carlin Isles.

Jason Hanson was working with kickers John Potter and Giorgio Tavecchio.

Thursday’s session wraps up the three-day voluntary minicamp.
