Unfortunately, Big Blue View is unable to attend these practices. Likewise, Lions’ policy prohibits the filming of the team portions of practice, so we can’t bring you any of the 7-on-7, 11-on-11, or situational drills. We can, however, bring you a glimpse of the sights and sounds of the first part of practice.
We are once thankful for our friends at Pride of Detroit for providing a practice report.
On the field
Time for warm-ups. Saquon Barkley is still “day to day” with a mild hamstring strain. Once again he was on the field with his teammates, but didn’t have his pads or do much work.

With Odell Beckham Jr. all warmed up, Lions fans got to see a show towhich the Giants, and Giants fans have become well-accustomed since 2014 — Beckham snaring one-handed passes like Spider-Man in cleats.
Then Eli Manning, Sterling Shepard, Roger Lewis Jr. Russell Shepard, Jawill Davis, and the rest go into the act.
Scenes and stills
Note: That left leg is Saquon’s injured one, so it can’t be too badly dinged.
