Delmas sits out of Friday practice

Posted by ttwentyman on October 12, 2012 – 11:50 am

Safety Louis Delmas did not participate in the portion of practice open to the media on Friday, but did sprint out of the building about 20 minutes into practice and dove head first into a tackling dummy.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said Thursday that Delmas has looked good in his recovery from Aug. 7 knee surgery and has suffered no setbacks.

“I usually just go with the injury report for him,” Schwartz said. “But with him because he hasn’t practiced the whole year, he’s had no setbacks. He’s looked good. We still have ground to cover until Sunday. We still treat him and keep an eye on things. But we’ve been very encouraged by getting him on the field last week and being able to get him back on the field this week. I think those were import things. He’s on a good track. Whether or not he gets it to Sunday, we still have some time. We’ll wait and see.”

Delmas has practiced all week, but was listed as limited on the injury report both Wednesday and Thursday.

The Lions will release the injury report with game designations at 4 p.m. today.

The only other player to miss practice was defensive tackle Corey Williams, who hasn’t practiced all week.

    I am hoping you meant to say he dove shoulder first into that tackling dummy….
