Facing a banged-up Detroit Lions secondary, Palmer struggled again Saturday night with two interceptions. He averaged under six yards per attempt in 58 preseason throws with no scores and four picks overall. His top receivers Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford might miss Week 1. Palmer does not look comfortable. He might have had a cameo in Oakland last year, but it sure looks like he's starting from scratch because of the coaching change.
» Running back Kevin Smith hurt his ankle. He says he didn't suffer a fracture, but the injury points out how woefully thin the Lions are in the backfield. They couldn't have used Cedric Benson? Don't be shocked if they give Ryan Grant a call this week. Both of the Lions' starting cornerbacks left with injuries too. Yikes.
» Terrelle Pryor somehow put up 227 total yards and three touchdowns on only three completions and five rushes. It was in garbage time, but that should help erase any doubts about whether he'll make the team.
