The Detroit Lions are expected to be as healthy as they’ve been all year as they return from their by week to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Just two Lions did not practice with the rest of the team today – Corey Williams, still just two weeks removed from knee surgery, and Titus Young who was given an extra day off to rest his knee. Young practiced yesterday and shouldn’t have any problems playing against the Eagles.

Louis Delmas was listed as a limited participant but his ability to get on the field at all is a good sign that he will make his season debut on Sunday. Delmas returned to the practice field last week for the first time since undergoing knee surgery in early August. Practicing again this week likely means that his knee responded well to last week’s workout.

Cliff Avril (back), Sammie Hill (toe), Brandon Pettigrew (knee) and Amari Spievey (groin) also practiced on a limited basis today.

The only other player named on the Lions injury report is rookie linebacker Travis Lewis. He continues to deal with a quad issue but he was able to take 100% of his normal reps at today’s practice.
