Lions training camp injury update: Louis Delmas gets more reps

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Louis Delmas saw his number of reps go up on Day 5 of Detroit Lions training camp.

As expected, Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas returned to practice on Tuesday after getting Monday off. It's pretty clear that the Lions' plan for him right now is to have him practice every other day. As Martin Mayhew said on Tuesday, everything Delmas is doing in training camp is "geared toward" making sure he can play when the regular season opens.

Even when Delmas had practiced before Tuesday, he didn't go through the entire session. The Lions pulled him off the field before team reps got going, giving Delmas a chance to ice his knee. On Tuesday, however, Delmas got a chance to go through some of the Lions' 11-on-11 drill, and Josh Katzenstein estimated that Delmas took part in around three-fourths of the practice. Chris McCosky said Delmas looked "sluggish," but this is all about slowly building up how much he can do.

In other injury news, defensive end Jason Jones was back on Tuesday after sitting out Monday's practice with a sore knee. The Lions were still without six players, though. Wide receiver Devin Thomas, defensive end Ronnell Lewis and linebacker Carmen Messina remained out, and cornerbacks Ron Bartell, Jonte Green and Chris Greenwood were sidelined as well.

In the new injuries department, defensive end Willie Young was in pain and had to get his ankle taped up, according to Justin Rogers. There's no word just yet on if it's anything beyond a minor injury, though.
