Just heard on ESPN that Marinelli sent Mike Williams home from Mini Camp, didn't specify on why, just mentioned that he has a history of being late for meetings.

it's all over the news already


"I excused him on a team issue," Marinelli said.

The Lions ended the three-day camp with one practice Friday. There were double sessions Wednesday and Thursday, but Williams did not take part in any of the practices.

Williams apparently is recovering from a slight hamstring injury. He rode a stationary bike on the sideline, as did other injured players, in a conditioning exercise.

Marinelli would not expand on his "team issue" statement to explain why Wililams had been disciplined. Williams was not available for comment Friday.

"That's how I'm going to leave it," Marinelli said.

Now if it wasn't for a bad reason, Marinelli would have came out and said it was because of injury or said something positive about what a great player Williams is and always give's 110% or some other newspaper fodder line.
