Lions coach Jim Caldwell will be spending some extended time with one of his former employers this summer.

The Lions open their preseason schedule with a game against Colts on Sunday. August 13 and the teams announced on Wednesday that they will hold joint practices at the Colts’ facility in the days leading up to the game. The practices will take place on August 10 and 11┬áin practices closed to the public.

Caldwell was the Colts’ head coach from 2009-11 and spent two years on the Ravens’ staff before being hired by the Lions.

The Lions practiced with the Steelers before last year’s preseason opener. The Colts last held joint practices with another team when they worked with the Bears in 2015.

    Thanks, just lost my appetite for lunch thinking about my team having to be in close proximity to Andrew Luck’s beard for an extended period of time.

    Caldwell is the Obama of the NFL. He runs the Lions into the ground just like Obama did to America.

    “Caldwell is the Obama of the NFL. He runs the Lions into the ground just like Obama did to America.”

    Caldwell has had more success with the Lions than any other coach since the 90’s. How many times did the Vi-Queens beat Detroit last year?
