I'm starting to think Ameer Abdullah's chances of making the team are better than originally thought. He was listed as the starting kick returner on the club's first depth chart of the season, and sure enough, took the first reps there against Oakland. Plus, he was the featured back during two-minute drills, and even caught a nice pass out of the backfield to move the chains.

The writer says the Lions could go several different ways at the back end of their RB rotation. But he feels Abdullah is athletic and could be an insurance policy should Riddick get injured at some point. He added at this point in camp, he thinks Abdullah would make the team.
