Lions OT's Corey Hilliard, Jason Fox Will Split Reps In Training Camp
Lions offensive lineman Jason Fox and Corey Hilliard will compete against each other to protect quarterback Matthew Stafford this season. The position became available after Gosder Cherilus signed with the Indianapolis Colts this offseason after five years in Detroit.
Hilliard and Fox split reps during organized team activities (OTAs) and mandatory minicamp this year, which is a trend that will continue during training camp.
"We'll keep them as equal as we can and let guys work with different groups," Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "We don't really talk in terms of the depth chart, even during training camp. We have groups and rotate those guys as we see fit and try to keep it where their rotation seems to be similar from day one. You might do something similar and then flip it the next day.
"We get plenty of reps. We don't hold back in training camp. We're going to get a lot snaps to evaluate that position as time goes on in camp."
