Detroit Lions training camp continued on Sunday with a morning practice. Several players were sidelined during the session, including safety Louis Delmas. He actually hasn't taken part in a practice since Aug. 6, meaning he's been out for nearly two weeks. He took part in warm-ups prior to the Lions' first preseason game, but that's essentially all he's done in the last couple weeks.
The good news is that Delmas may be set to return to practice soon. Actually, he could be back as soon as Monday, according to Jim Schwartz.

In other injury news, quarterback Shaun Hill, tight end Matt Veldman and defensive tackle Nick Fairley returned to practice on Sunday. In addition to Delmas, defensive end Jason Jones, defensive tackle John Drew, linebacker Cory Greenwood and cornerback Ross Weaver were out. Also, cornerback Chris Houston didn't take part in team drills, according to Chris McCosky.
With Houston missing some time, Ron Bartell moved over to take his spot at cornerback with the first-team defense. Darius Slay continued to get work with the No. 1 unit as well, according to Kyle Meinke.
