But with the clock ticking toward the regular season, there doesn’t seem to be a load of optimism coming from the Lions.
“We’re closing in on that [getting Delmas ready for the regular season] for sure,” Schwartz said, via Anwar Richardson of MLive.com. “He’s not to the point that he’s even on a progression right now. He’s week-to-week. He’s not day-to-day.
“A lot of those other guys are day-to-day as they come out. He’s week-to-week.”
John Wendling has been working with the starters in his absence, and seems likely to continue to.
Any time a coach is willing to budge from the cliched “day-to-day” answer, it’s seldom a good sign.
And with less than three weeks to go before the opener, they’re running out of weeks in week-to-week.
