There was so much news involving the Detroit Lions yesterday that we decided to cut it up into two separate pieces and install a morning edition for the coffee drinkers out there. Good morning. Now, to the bullets…
Head coach Jim Schwartz is nearly certain safety Louis Delmas will not play in the preseason, according to beat writer Tim Twentyman. Delmas is coming off of his Aug. 7 knee surgery to his left knee and has only been a spectator at practice the past two weeks.
- Lions’ superstar Ndamukong Suh sat down with GQ for a very thorough piece about the well-guarded player. Hat tip to Justin Rogers for sharing this with us.
- Nate Burleson’s one wish is to finish his career as Super Bowl champion and would love to do it with Detroit.
- After sustaining an ankle injury against the Baltimore Ravens on Friday, Stefan Logan’s mother was very worried that he was not alright because he usually “pops right up” after getting hit. With Logan sitting out of practice the majority of the past two days, the return game has looked shaky at practice.
- MLive’s Justin Rogers also noted that defensive ends Willie Young and Lawrence Jackson did a great job batting down passes at the line of scrimmage during Sunday’s practice.
- It is important for Detroit Lions’ second-year running back Mikel Leshoure to get some preseason action before the exhibition season ends because of the two-game suspension he must sit through before he can play during the regular season.
