Morning Roar: Practice resumes today

9/2/2013

Good morning and ROOOAAARRRRR!!!

The links name may be the same but you'll notice today begins my stint here as the new Detroit Lions blogger for ESPN.com after covering Michigan football the past two seasons for ESPN.com. Greetings. Excited to get started.

More importantly, however, today starts the first regular season practice week for Detroit. Unlike some other teams in the league, the Lions did not practice on Labor Day.

Detroit will work out this morning and then the Lions will have access post-practice as usual, so there could be some clarity on the status of rookie defensive end Ziggy Ansah, who possibly suffered a concussion in practice last week, the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett reported. The Lions, though, won't be required to submit an injury report until Wednesday.

Ansah's status is one thing to keep an eye on the rest of the week, but it isn't the only thing about the Lions wandering around the Interwebs.
