Lions OC Scott Linehan suggested that Mike Thomas will handle much of the slot work in three-receiver sets.
Thomas is expected to be the next man up to start opposite Calvin Johnson, but he'll move inside in sure-fire passing situations. Linehan also mentioned Brian Robiskie as a guy that's a "very good route runner" who has "excellent hands." Robiskie and Thomas will be needed to make some plays to keep defenses from putting a stranglehold on Megatron. We'll get our first look at how the Lions' pecking order will shake out tonight on Sunday Night Football in Green Bay.
