Lions training camp injury update: Louis Delmas out yet again

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Louis Delmas has now been off for three straight days. Is this merely a part of the Detroit Lions' plan to keep him healthy or did he suffer a setback?

Through the first five days of Detroit Lions training camp, the plan with safety Louis Delmas was pretty clear. He would practice, get a day off and then repeat the cycle. This was all a part of the Lions' plan to keep him healthy, as they didn't want to overwork him and cause his knee injury to flare up.

The last couple days, the Lions have not stuck to that same plan. The Lions were off on Wednesday, and Delmas got Thursday off as well. The thinking was he'd be back on Friday, but he was once again absent from practice. That means he's now gotten three straight days off. It's entirely possible this could be by design, but it's a bit concerning that he's now missed back-to-back days of practice. If he's not back on Saturday, it may really be time to question what's going on.

In other injury news, the secondary remains banged up. Cornerbacks Jonte Green and Chris Greenwood didn't practice, nor did safety Amari Spievey. Also, cornerback Darius Slay had to leave practice early to get his left ankle iced. He rolled it on Thursday, and it still gave him some issues on Friday.

The other players out on Friday were wide receiver Devin Thomas (PUP list) and defensive ends Israel Idonije and Jason Jones. Defensive end Willie Young and linebacker Carmen Messina returned to practice on Friday, and center Leroy Harris exited the practice early to get his knee wrapped, according to Chris McCosky.
