by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Lions rookie linebacker Kyle Van Noy suffered a thumb injury during practice Monday, MLive.con reports.

"I'm fine," Van Noy said. "I just got a little banged up, but I should be fine."

Van Noy had to get his hand taped in the locker room, cutting his first training camp practice short. The rookie believes he'll be able to practice Tuesday, though coach Jim Caldwell said the team would have a better feel for the extent of the injury after practice.

Lions table Ndamukong Suh talks
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Lions tabled contract discussions with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh until after the season. Team president Tom Lewand said he remains optimistic the Lions will retain Suh, who will be a free agent after this year.

The team cannot afford to franchise him in 2015 because his tag would cost a staggering $26.7 million.

Matthew Stafford displaying better mechanics -- so far
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said he's impressed with quarterback Matthew Stafford's approach so far, especially the way he's been absorbing the playbook and paying attention to detail.

"He is getting better," Caldwell told the Detroit News. "His command of the offense has been good."

Caldwell said it was obvious how much work Stafford put in before coming to camp. "I was impressed when he came back that first of all he did not miss a beat," Caldwell said. "He’s a very, very smart guy. You could tell he’s worked at it even during the summer.

"In every facet when he came back, I could see improvement — footwork, accuracy, timing, command of the offense, all of those things. Now we get a chance to see if we can put it together a little bit more, add a few more things, keep progressing and then get some real challenges from our opposition as we start preseason."
