No word on how serious.

Hopefully it's just a scope. I know people aren't as bullish on him as we were after his rookie year, but the defense is clearly better when he's in there versus Coleman or Jones.

Absolutely. He would be so much better with someone decent next to him, in my opinion.

Dr. James Andrews is usually not a good sign. Will hope for the best but the fact it was quiet and done a little sneaky makes me think it's probably a slightly bigger issue than expected.


Schwartz says he is week to week, not day to day. Dosnt sound good.

Louis Delmas is the next Bob Sanders.

Unfortunately I don't think you mean DPOY Bob Sanders. It's so frustrating that he can't stay healthy.

Didn't Andrews do the scope on Stanton's knee that landed him on IR as a rookie? That surgery wasn't serious at all and he could have played if not for the fact that JT O'Sullivan was clearly too good for Martz to cut.

Edit - Yep he did.

If it's a scope then Delmas might miss a game or two, but it shouldn't be a season-ending deal.

We are going to struggle big time this year in the secondary especially if Delmas misses signifcant time, I think that goes without saying. Lets just hope the front 7 can do their part and the offense can stay hot all season.

Via radio;

Delmas had a scope and hopes to be back in time for game 1 of regular season.

Well, that's pretty much the best-case scenario when it comes to knee surgery. It usually takes about a month, and we're one month and one day away from the opener.

Hopefully we dont rush him back either, as much as I want him ready for week 1 and the fact he is desperately needed in our secondary, I dont want him to play until he is 100%, hate it to be reagravated and keep him out longer, even if its only soreness...

Hopefully as talented as the Lions are we arent constantly being undone by a poor secondary Crying or Very sad

If Chris Greenwood comes off PuP maybe he can get some reps at Safety. It may not be ideal but he has more than enough height, length and speed to be a situational safety.

Well Delmas has never been able to stay fully healthy so hopefully this procedure helps him avoid injury during the season.

Now would be a good time for Spievey to finally get his act together and be a solid player for us.
