Amon-Ra St. Brown intends to alter the Lions’ blocking configuration.

JUST IN: An unexpected attempt to alter the Lions….

Amon-Ra St. Brown working on changing his blocking form after getting hit with fine after using his helmet.

When the Detroit Lions travel to New Orleans Saints in Week 13, they aim to resume their winning ways.

Thanksgiving Day marked the Lions’ Week 12 home loss, and they required a late comeback to defeat the Chicago Bears in Week 11.

In that particular game, standout wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown received a fine for colliding with Chicago defensive back Jaquan Brisker with his helmet.

For that hit, St. Brown was fined more than $43,000. He practiced for a while, honing his blocking technique.

He wants to avoid getting fined for his efforts and does not want any player, including himself, to get hurt as a result of his blocking.

Maybe just not lowering your head, I guess,” St. Brown said.

“Using your shoulder. Just not making it forcible contact with your head to his head or to the other player’s head.

But like I said, I kind of tend to block that way, so I got to figure some things out.”

St. Brown may need some work on his blocking technique, but when it comes to running pass patterns and catching passes, he has done an outstanding job this season.

Head coach Dan Campbell and quarterback Jared Goff know that St. Brown will make big plays when the game is on the line.
