Louis Delmas downgraded for Lions-Raiders

The Lions are getting a few key players back this week, but they will still be without the best player in their secondary.

The Lions announced that safety Louis Delmas has been downgraded from questionable to out. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that other questionable players like cornerback Chris Houston and running back Kevin Smith made the trip to the Bay Area. They are expected to play Sunday despite being listed as questionable.

With Ndamukong Suh also returning, the Lions are in good shape for perhaps the most intriguing game of the week that very few people will watch.  (It’s opposite Tebow-Brady Armageddon.)

  1. Proof that you have no idea about the Lions at all is the following statement.

    “The Lions are getting a few key players back this week, but they will still be without the best player in their secondary.”

    The best player in their secondary?!!! Now, I do think Delmas is learning to be a good player and I love his play but in way is he better than, or played better than, Houston, Wright or even Smith in his one game.

  2. I would love to watch the Oakland-Detroit game over New England-Denver, but our local isn’t showing it. Even though Detroit is actually in the same conference as the local team, so people are actually interested.

    Guess I’ll have to listen on radio.

    Coming from a Dolphins fan…. priceless.

  4. Look no disrespect to delmas, im a die hard lions fan and i do like delmas, i just wish hed learn to wrap up on a tackle instead of always going for that big hit because sometimes he just misses the guy and allows extra yards. If he’d learn to just relax, and go for the tackle instead of the big hit constantly hed be really improving! But heal up delmas, and glad our defense is closer to full strength! GO LIONS!

  5. @ miamidolphins1:
    I see you’re still riding on the Dolphins past and not talking about this year, or the future. Keep reminiscing with your eyes closed and your ears plugged. It will make you feel better. Ha-ha!

  6. Delmas is a force. He is very raw yes but he makes QBs and WRs respect the middle of the field. He plays his safety position like a LB. Bet when he is out there recievers dont want to get smashed by him. Give him another year and watch this secondary mesh together. Da Raida’s and carson INT palmer are gonna be in for a smash mouth game. over under penalty yards 250…….well one record will get beat today…….yellow laundry raining from the heavens

    I guess a if by “few”, you mean a few million, I can agree with that. Despite the Tebow/Brady powder puff bowl being played to a national audience, the Raiders/Lions game of warriors will still be watched by a lot of fans in a few TV markets, Sunday Ticket house holds, sports bars, and free internet streams. I’m sure it will go national once The Brady’s have the game under control with a 30 point lead headed into the 4th quarter.
