Lions safety Louis Delmas has missed the team’s last three games with a Grade 2 MCL sprain. The injury typically heals with rest. Delmas, however, has undergone arthroscopic surgery to repair the injury.
According to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News, coach Jim Schwartz downplayed the situation.
“I guess you could say he’s day to day,” Schwartz said. “You could call it a minor scope on his knee. Barring anything that comes out of this game, we don’t have anybody that’s more than day to day.”
With the Lions closing in on a playoff berth, it could make more sense to give Delmas the next two weeks off, in order to ensure that he’ll be ready for the postseason.
Delmas suffered the injury on Thanksgiving against the Packers.
