Detroit Lions rookie Nevin Lawson was supposed to get a quiet introduction to the NFL on Monday night.
“A nickname’s cool. That’s just terrible,” Mosley said. “I don’t know what he’s getting at by that.”
“We talk about the situation a lot,” Glover Quin said. “You wonder what really happened and what really didn’t happen.”

Detroit coach Jim Caldwell is enjoying having Calvin Johnson on his side.
Reynolds spent training camp with the Lions and played both tackle and guard.
