News: Bynes notched five total tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in Thursday's preseason win over the Bills.
Impact: Bynes was a safe bet to make the team as a backup linebacker and Thursday's performance should only help to that end. Once the season starts, however, expect Bynes to see the field primarily as a special teams player. The Lions have a very strong starting linebacking corps, so backup opportunities may be tough to come by unless there's an injury.
