Lions’ Louis Delmas Knee Is 88 to 90 Percent


Louis Delmas plays a crucial role in the Detroit Lions defense. Unfortunately he’s missed 13 games over the last two season and the Lions need him on the field. He missed 8 games in the 2013 season with a knee injury and he’s still trying to get back to 100% in time for the season.

“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 ESPN Radio on Wednesday, via MLive.com. “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.”

Maybe he should take a page out of Adrian Peterson’s book and play the Wii to strengthen it.

Lions fans are understandably drustrated with his inability to stay on the field. When healthy and playing for the Lions he is a dynamic playmaker that can change the game. He also brings a presence to the secondary that allows his defensive teammates to play more aggressively knowing he is behind them.
