Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE
Because I have a deadline, but six players just isn't enough, here's a quick rundown of other high/lowlights.
Lance Long, WR: Long put up similar numbers to Broyles in this one, and could be a good player to keep around. Too bad he's not eligible for practice squad work.
Patrick Edwards, WR: A non-factor in the passing game, but finally posted a decent punt return, which will help his stock.
Everette Brown, DE: Had a mostly quiet day against a pretty solid Bills line, but getting a piece of Thigpen's arm to force the wobbly INT on the final play of the game just reminded everyone what a good preseason he's had. He'll play for someone this year.
Kevin Barnes, CB: Gave up penalties, touchdowns and a two-point conversion. Luckily he plays cornerback, and the Lions might not be healthy enough to cut any cornerback right now.
Joique Bell, RB: Put up good numbers receiving passes, but the rushing magic has worn off. He finished with less than two yards per carry, and at one point he had minus-six yards rushing on four attempts with a fumble.
Second-half special teams: In the first half, special teams looked amazing. Kick returners couldn't make it to the 20, the Lions recovered a fumble inside the 10-yard line and Edwards found the corner on a punt return.
In the second half, there was a 20-yard punt return, and 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, and Nate Hughes returning kicks to about the 17-yard line. Yeech.
