The Detroit Lions practiced in the snow this week despite not having a cold-weather game scheduled for a month.
"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."
LeGarrette Blount hinted that the team practiced outside to prepare for future cold-weather games.
"I mean, towards the end of the season, we're going to be in Green Bay and then we're going to be in Buffalo," Blount said. "You know, so, you don't want to try and get prepared for those the week of. It's a preparation thing, so you want to be ready for those whenever the time comes. You don't want to have to wait and practice outside for two days or three days and then have to go there and it's way colder than what you expect it to be.
"So, like I said, we strap it up and we go out there and grind and whatever it is, it is, and we just got to go handle it."
