Louis Delmas returns to practice as Lions get set to break for bye week

The Detroit Lions got safety Louis Delmas back at practice on Wednesday for the first time since August.

The Detroit Lions will have to wait until after their bye week to see safety Louis Delmas in action in a real game, but they didn't have to wait until after the bye for him to practice. The Lions held one final practice on Wednesday before players break for the bye week, and Delmas was on the field for it.

According to Tim Twentyman, Delmas "didn't seem limited at all" when the media had a chance to watch practice. This is a good indication that Delmas is on track to play next week when the Lions take on the Philadelphia Eagles. If there was a game on Sunday, his status might be a little more up in the air, but with the Lions getting a week off before getting back at it, I expect Delmas in the lineup next week.

In addition to getting Delmas back at practice for the first time since his knee surgery in August, the Lions also had linebacker Travis Lewis back on the practice field on Wednesday. He had missed a lot of time with a quad injury, so it's good that he is getting healthier.

According to Twentyman, the Lions were without TE Brandon Pettigrew, OG Rob Sims, C Dominic Raiola, DE Cliff Avril, DT Corey Williams, LB Stephen Tulloch, LB Justin Durant and CB Bill Bentley on Wednesday.
