ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- On Tuesday, the Detroit Lions continued practicing outside for their next preseason game (Friday, 7:30 p.m. ET) against Blake Bortles, Denard Robinson and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
- Safety DeJon Gomes missed practice for the second consecutive day, but was in the locker room earlier Tuesday. He was spotted in the player's parking lot following the media portion of practice walking back into the building. Receiver TJ Jones continues not to practice as he is the only Lions player on the physically unable to perform list. Otherwise, every Detroit player was in attendance and practicing.
- The Lions only do individual drills when the media is allowed to practice so it is tough to get a complete gauge, but LaAdrian Waddle was running with the first team Tuesday and Corey Hilliard the second team. This fits with their typical flip-flop on a daily basis at right tackle, continuing to battle there.
- The Lions also released cornerback Drayton Florence, who was signed earlier during training camp.
