The Detroit Lions have been making headlines lately.
For marijuana usage and police reports. Mikel Leshoure and Nick Fairley have run into the trouble with the long arm of the law, and their news has dominated Lions related headlines lately. Leshoure faces a felony charge;
In January, offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath was arrested for simple possession of marijuana after he was spotted on a hotel surveillance camera putting two blunts in the drawer of a hallway dresser. Fairley faces a second degree marijuana possession charge.
But there is on-the-field news too. The Lions preseason schedule is out.
The Lions have one nationally televised preseason game: August 17th at the Baltimore Ravens. Their first game will be August 9-13th versus the Cleveland Browns. Week two, August 16th-20th they’ll take on the division rival Green Bay Packers. In week three, August 23rd-26th, they’ll visit the Oakland Raiders. In week four they’ll host the Buffalo Bills.
By the way, the next time you’re looking to get high in Detroit- just visit the Lions training complex!
The Lions have had so many drug busts, the next one will officially rename the team the Cincinnati Bengals.
