The second episode of the 'Hard Knocks' season featuring the Lions in training camp aired on Tuesday night, focusing more on player stories and emerging presences in camp.

Sixth-round pick Malcolm Rodriguez is shining in Allen Park, and the linebacker was a focal point of the episode.

HBO showed running backs coach and assistant head coach Duce Staley pushing D'Andre Swift in the running backs room, telling the third-year back he can be the best in the league.

Aidan Hutchinson and his family were again featured, as the No. 2 overall pick was shown making his debut.

HBO also showed Amon-Ra St. Brown's father John, a former Mr. Universe, training his sons in the weight room.

St. Brown recited every wide receiver selected before him in the 2021 NFL Draft.
