Lions HC Jim Caldwell said he doesn't have any concerns about DeAndre Levy entering the season. He does, though, worry about everyone's health. Caldwell said they won't gauge Levy based on 2014 because Levy's knowledge has been expanding. He missed almost all of last season with a hip injury.

Lions HC Jim Caldwell said "we'll see" when it comes to Ameer Abdullah getting carries Saturday against Baltimore. Abdullah told me yesterday it would be "cool" to play against the Ravens since he hasn't played in the preseason yet.

Jim Caldwell said when Dennis Green was at Northwestern, the last thing that happened every morning meeting was setting basketball teams for the day. And occasionally an ABA player would show up -- and shoot the lights out.

Lions DC Teryl Austin said he views CB Alex Carter like a rookie. Anything the Lions get out of him he looks at it as "rookie development." Carter was on IR all last year.

Teryl Austin said consistency will separate the DTs behind Haloti Ngata and Tyrunn Walker when it comes to roster spots. Austin said A'Shawn Robinson has been "trending in the right direction" the last few weeks.

Lions DC Teryl Austin said "he might show up, he might not" when asked if DeAndre Levy will play Saturday against Baltimore.

First time in the Lions locker room this season today. Some things stood out. It appears there is new carpet. They added more lockers in an area where computers used to be. There's also an updated paint job, with "Detroit Lions" and "One Pride" written in gray with a blue background. The ping pong table and corn hole boards are still there. There are also new digital screens displaying messages and the team's schedule. Also noticed -- two racks of pegs where players can hang gloves and cleats. Due to Lions rules, no pictures of any of these things were allowed.

Eric Ebron returns to practice for the Lions for the first time since being injured Aug. 6. Didn't see him do much, though. Golden Tate and Don Carey are also back. Graham Glasgow and Isaiah Johnson did not practice. You can kind of see Ebron doing nothing here.

Lions HC Jim Caldwell said he does not play Madden and he doesn't know his coaching rating on it. Said he has played NBA 2K with his grandson this summer. It didn't sound like it went well.

Lions HC Jim Caldwell said "we'll see" when asked about when Brandon Pettigrew will return or if he will start the season on PUP.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Lions HC Jim Caldwell said they have to be effective in fast-tempo offense because otherwise they are just "going fast."
