It’s officially the “dog days” of training camp and intriguing stories seem hard to come by unless it’s injury related topics you’re interested in. So today at practice, the media found out that Jhavid Best was cleared this morning and should be back on the field on Wednesday.
Calvin Johnson and Kyle Vanden Boesch are suffering from nagging shoulder injuries and will probably miss Saturday’s third preseason game against the Patriots. Also Titus Young seems to be recovering well from his hamstring issue and completed the entire practice session this morning. So there it is, pretty much everything that came out of training camp on Tuesday …
Ohh wait, I forgot something! Also on Tuesday Lions receiver Nate Burleson was discussing how he goes about planning and putting together his touchdown celebrations and while getting into depth about his craft he made a bold proclamation. “If the stars align and everything works out within the play when HE scores, it will be the best celebration you ever see.” The “he” Burleson was talking about was Johnson. According to Burleson, Johnson has a celebration planned for sometime during the season that will put every other celebration that has ever been done to shame. Louis Delmas did not believe it when told about it, and Johnson himself would not give any clues about what it might look like, so I guess we are left to just wait and see. Are you buying it?
Watch the Burleson video below as he talks about the potential Johnson celebration and maybe you can guess what Calvin is planning? Also, I was wondering what TD celebration is the best of all time, well that is until Calvin blows them all away!
