ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz says he's seen San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh "a bunch of times" since their altercation last season.

Schwartz ran after Harbaugh in October after the 49ers' coach gave him an exuberant handshake and backslap following San Francisco's victory at Detroit. Schwartz says that's long in the past now, with the Lions preparing to play at San Francisco this Sunday.

Schwartz was asked how any handshakes with Harbaugh have gone since their dustup. He said: "Without incident."

Detroit opened the season with a 27-23 victory over the St. Louis Rams, rallying to win on Matthew Stafford's short touchdown pass to Kevin Smith with 10 seconds left. San Francisco beat the Packers in its opener.
