ALLEN PARK -- The Detroit Lions put on the pads at training camp for the first time on Tuesday. Here are some notes and observations from the team's fifth day of practice.
-- Fullback James Bryant was clearly excited to start delivering hits. In an early portion of practice, the Lions worked on some short-yardage runs. Bryant delivered punishing blocks on back-to-back snaps, opening up some nice running lanes for the backs. After each of those collisions, Bryant let out a scream and pounded his chest as teammates whooped and hollered.
-- On one of the snaps where Bryant provided a big block, running back Joique Bell was able to reverse field after his interior running lane closed and bust a long run around the right edge.
