The Lions wrapped another week of voluntary OTAs with a strong contingency of players at the team’s training facility. Nearly all the 90-man roster was participating or at least in the house and rehabbing injuries.
But it wasn’t a full attendance. That’s perfectly fine by the way; the NFLPA forcefully reminds the players that the OTAs are voluntary activities.
Culled from various reports in Allen Park on the week, the following players were not present for the OTA sessions during the week of June 1st:
TE T.J. Hockenson
TE Garrett Griffin
LT Taylor Decker
EDGE Romeo Okwara
EDGE Josh Paschal
NT John Penisini
All but Penisini are coming off injuries that would limit their participation. All are expected to be at the mandatory minicamp this coming week, Penisini included.
