The Lions Nate Burleson joined Valenti and Foster earlier today on the Ticket. Burleson admits he received a fine from the NFL today for $7,500 for an inadvertent face mask Sunday against the Saints. Burleson says this is not highschool and that the players have to use more restraint.

Lions did practice today without 4 starters, Kevin Smith, Louis Delmas, Chris Houston and Nick Fairley who was spotted in a walking boot today.
