Last August, we’d heard that Lions safety Louis Delmas had a groin injury sufficiently severe to prompt consideration of surgery that would have knocked him out for the entire season.  The Lions predictably denied that the injury was severe, and Delmas ultimately did not undergo surgery.

Earlier today, his agent Drew Rosenhaus disclosed via Twitter that Delmas indeed played the entire 2010 season with a “severe” groin injury.  “He is back to full speed and able to work out with no limitation,” Rosenhaus said.

Delmas appeared on the injury report for the first eight weeks of the season with a groin injury.  He missed only one game, in Week 16, due to a concussion.
