Daniel Fells handling blocking duties in scheme

Even with Eric Ebron out with a hamstring injury, the Lions have spent significant time with two tight ends on the field thus far in training camp. Darren Fells and Cole Wick joined Golden Tate and Marvin Jones in the first play of full-team drills each of the last two days, and Fells had a standout practice today, making several tough catches in traffic.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Fells was signed as a free agent in the spring largely for his blocking ability to beef up the run game, and Anquan Boldin was let go. A shift to two-tight end personnel could free up more opportunities for Ebron, who remains a back-end TE1 with upside.
