The Detroit Lions have lost one day of organized offseason workouts after breaking rules relating to on-field contact during a practice last month.

In a statement on Friday, the team said the NFL and the NFL Players Association informed it of the violation the week of May 27.

According to the NFL, the team conducted organized team activities (OTAs) from May 21-23 and May 29-31. Detroit had their final OTAs planned Monday through Wednesday before training camp next month.

However, with the violation, they lost Monday's workout and won't be able to return until Tuesday.

"We take very seriously the rules set forth within the NFL's Offseason Program and have worked to conduct our practices accordingly," the Lions said in the statement. "We will continue to be vigilant with our practices moving forward."
