Episode 3 of HBO’s 2022 Hard Knocks training camp featured the Detroit Lions’ trip to Indianapolis for two days of joint practice with the Colts ahead of their Week 2 preseason game. With their first win of the 2022 preseason in the books, how will the Lions roster look after the third preseason game and final cuts on the horizon? Here’s how to watch episode 4 of Hard Knocks on Tuesday night.

The fourth-quarter loss at home in Week 1 of the preseason was rough but provided head coach Dan Campbell with an excellent opportunity to address his squad to open episode 3 of the 2022 Hard Knocks season. The Lions were on the verge of victory, but between the bobbled snap and a dropped interception, the same yips from the 2021 season came back to bite them. Using a pair of pants covered in dust, Campbell likened shaking out the dust to the team’s last bad habits holding them back on the field.
The roster responded in Week 2 with an impressive performance during the second day of practice. They then carried that over into the game. Now Detroit heads into the final week of the preseason, needing to make some tough decisions, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
While episode 4 of the 2022 Hard Knocks season will be submitted before the 53-man roster deadline on Aug. 30 at 4 p.m., the Lions already have to make tough decisions with some Hard Knocks headliners. Former Central Michigan WR Kalil Pimpleton got cut Monday afternoon but should garner interest from other NFL teams, according to PFN NFL insider and reporter Aaron Wilson.
The tone won’t be as positive following a rough outing against the Steelers in Pittsburgh. However, some bouncebacks and good individual performances should go a long way in helping some players make the final roster.
With one more episode set to air during the off week between the preseason and the start of the regular season, there’s still plenty to sort out in Detroit ahead of their home opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
