Detroit Lions practice in snow, leave players asking why

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions don’t play a cold-weather outdoor game for a month, but on a day in Michigan with temperatures in the mid-30s and snow falling throughout the day, the franchise decided to practice outside.

And it left at least one Lions player with questions as to why.

“I don’t know. I mean, I’m just out there trying to stay warm, really,” cornerback Darius Slay said. “Like you said, we got indoor games. Obviously, it doesn’t even matter.”

The 3-6 Lions play at home — in climate-controlled Ford Field — on Sunday against Carolina, then on Thanksgiving against Chicago and on Dec. 1 against the Los Angeles Rams. Then they travel to Arizona before heading to Buffalo on Dec. 16, a full month — or four games — away from where Detroit is now.
