Tom Kowalski reports for mlive.com the Detroit Lions are working on an injury settlement with veteran RB Amp Lee (hamstring).

His status for this week's game is unknown.

WR Herman Moore (shoulder), TE David Sloan (hand) and RB Amp Lee (hamstring) may see action in Saturday's pre-season game. G Stockar McDougle (groin) and DT Shaun Rogers (ankle) definitely will play.

Curt Sylvester reports for the Free Press Detroit Lions RB Lamont Warren, out of football in 2000, appears to be the leading candidate to back up RB James Stewart. He has been a steady performer in training camp and has made the most of his opportunities in the pre-season, with six carries for 52 yards (8.7 yards an attempt) and four receptions for 33 yards. With Warren, Sedrick Irvin, Reuben Droughns and Amp Lee competing for the backup job, coach Marty Mornhinweg probably won't make a decision until the end of the pre-season.

Curt Sylvester reports for the Free Press the Detroit Lions expect a spirited competition for the team's No. 2 RB slot. The candidates are Amp Lee, Lamont Warren, Reuben Droughns and Sedrick Irvin. After spending last season in the doghouse, Irvin is now enjoying a fresh start with a new staff. "It's a great opportunity for me," Irvin said Friday, the first day of full-squad workouts. Sedrick is right in the ballpark as far as our running back situation," said coach Marty Mornhinweg. Irvin likes the team's new West Coast offense, which includes a lot of passes to running backs.

Tom Kowalski reports Mlive.com that the Detroit Lions have a battle brewing at backup running back. Lamont Warren appears to be the favorite for the backup role entering training camp. He appears to have impressed the coaches the most during mini-camps with his solid hands and decent running skills. Second-year back Reuben Droughns, who missed his entire rookie year, hasn't shown any great moves and appears better suited for fullback. However, that could change with a good pre-season showing. Sedrick Irvin and Amp Lee are also in the mix. Irvin continues to show great hands, but isn't very fast. Lee knows the offense well, but doesn't have good speed and could be on the outside looking in.

The Oakland Press reports RBs Lamont Warren, Amp Lee, Sedrick Irvin and Rueben Droughns are competing for the Detroit Lions' third-down back role.

According to Curt Sylvester of the Free Press, the Detroit Lions will be closely looking at their offensive line and for a third-down back at this weekend's mini-camp. Currently it appears rookie Jeff Backus and last year's No. 1 pick, Stockar McDougle, will line up at tackle. OL Aaron Gibson (shoulder surgery) will not practice. Matt Joyce and Kerlin Blaise will see action at left guard. RBs Amp Lee, Lamont Warren, Sedrick Irvin and Reuben Droughns are all expected to get a look at third-down back along with starting RB James Stewart.

As a follow up to a story previously reported, the Detroit News reports Detroit Lions President Matt Millen was talking to the Cleveland Browns about trading for QB Ty Detmer to be the backup to starting QB Charlie Batch. Detmer is very familiar with the West Coast offense the Lions are installing. He missed all of last season because of an Achilles' tendon injury suffered in the pre-season. The Lions appear close to signing RB Amp Lee who has been around the NFL for nine seasons. He worked out for the team and he looked healthy. The Lions tendered offers to four exclusive-rights free agents, S Kywin Supernaw, WR Larry Foster, QB Cory Sauter and OL Andy Vincent. LB Kevin O'Neill, a restricted free agent, was not tendered and is now an unrestricted free agent.
