The Lions canceled practice Tuesday to take a stand after the shooting of Jacob Blake.
Lions players stood outside their practice facility in Allen Park with a white board that said, “The world can’t go on” and on the other side, “We won’t be silent.”

Matthew Stafford also spoke on the issues.
Stafford: We had our team meeting this morning and no football was talked about. Coach just opened the floor. The conversations lasted four hours and it was incredible to be a part of it.
