LIONS ON 7: Roster spots up for grabs as Lions visit Raiders for second preseason game

OAKLAND, Calif. (WXYZ) - The Lions hit the road Friday night, and with the road trip comes another opportunity for players to stake their claim to roster spots.

Although the roster won't be cut down to 75 until August 26, some newcomers have made an early impression on the coaching staff, and will look to build on last week's performance this Friday.

One such Lion who made his mark early is running back George Winn, who led the team with 39 rushing yards on 6 carries in Detroit's 13-12 win over Cleveland.

Friday's game kicks off at 10:00 p.m. at the O.co Coliseum, and can be viewed live on WXYZ-TV. The Lions Tailgate pregame show airs at 9:30 p.m.
