Lions FS Louis Delmas Says He's Still Not At 100 Percent
Lions safety Louis Delmas' knee injury which has kept him out of 13 games over the past two seasons as well as this offseason's mandatory minicamp in early June is not 100 percent yet, Gillian Van Stratt of Mlive reports.
"I'm feeling great. I'm not all the way back 100 percent yet, but I can go around the range of 88 to 90 percent right now," Delmas told Sean Baligian on ESPN 96.1 Wednesday evening. "I still got a long road ahead of me. I plan on going through camp, trying to build my knee up as much as possible so I can go into the season 100 percent."
That should serve as good news to Lions fans. But the better news is that what Delmas saw this summer - even if it was from the sidelines - was something he hadn't seen in a long time.
"It's crazy," Delmas said. "You could even see it in OTAs. We had a couple of team practices where the offense could be doing bad or the defense could be doing bad, but for some reason, we'd find it within each other to pick each other back up. And I know that we have the potential to do that during the season.
"This year, I do plan on going past the first round. Because we have the motivation and we have the confidence enough to not only overcome adversity, but defeat it."
