We’ve seen it time and time again in the NFL: The recovery time following major knee surgery is never a certainty and rarely treats two players the same. The latest example is Kevin Smith.

It’s the morning after … nine games were on the NFL preseason slate on Saturday night, so let’s take a bullet-point look on thoughts and observations from around the league.
Ndamukong Suh took part in afternoon practice Wednesday with his new Lions teammates, and coaches wasted no time in putting the No. 2 overall pick right where he had been during offseason practices — in the starting lineup.

The Lions are mad as hell, and they are not going to take it anymore. Of course, a decade of losing will do that to you.

June is the time to declare that the Lions are going to the playoffs. Lions players Louis Delmas and Ndamukong Suh have already made the proclamation.
LB Keith Bulluck does not necessarily agree with that sentiment.
Lions rookie RB Jahvid Best will have every chance to make a major fantasy impact this season.
NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora was on the Around the League update desk on “NFL Total Access” on Wednesday, updating the rehabilitation progress of Texans TE Owen Daniels and free agent LB Keith Bulluck.
Lions DE Kyle Vanden Bosch told NFL Network he believes his new team is “a lot closer than people think.”
Jahvid Best may not be a true featured back as a rookie, but it’s pretty easy to predict that he’ll see the majority of the backfield touches for the Lions in 2010.
Lions fans have made themselves heard: They want Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh. And the Lions might have tipped their hand, too.
Lions general manager Martin Mayhew says nothing is imminent, but that the team is interested in Adam “Pacman” Jones’ services.
The Lions conducted visits with CB Adam “Pacman” Jones and DT Anthony Hargrove last week as part of the process in the overhaul of their defense. Signings don’t sound imminent, though, as coach Jim Schwartz said Sunday the team is still gathering information.

It appears Patriots WR Wes Welker has more to rehab from this offseason than a serious knee injury.
The Lions have agreed to a four-year, $26 million deal with 31-year-old DE Kyle Vanden Bosch, according to a league source. The deal calls for $10 million to be paid in the first year.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz just addressed reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine media center and said the team is willing to move its first-round draft pick (No. 2 overall) if the right trade presents itself.
