Lions vs. Texans injury report: Louis Delmas could play on Thursday

Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas returned to practice on Tuesday and may be able to play this week.

The Detroit Lions got some good news on safety Louis Delmas on Tuesday, as he returned to practice on a limited basis. What exactly does that mean for Thursday's game against the Houston Texans? Well, Jim Schwartz said that Delmas "has a shot" to play, according to CBS Lions. It would be a big boost for the defense if he can go, so hopefully he won't suffer any setbacks from now until Thanksgiving.

In other Lions injury news, Schwartz hasn't ruled out Jeff Backus yet for Thursday's game. It's unlikely he will be able to play considering he missed Tuesday's practice, but never say never.
