Lions Get Safety Louis Delmas Back At Practice

LARRY LAGE,AP Sports Writer

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have gotten a key player back on the field.

Safety Louis Delmas practiced Wednesday for the first time since having surgery on his left knee nearly two months ago. The Lions desperately need the veteran in their shaky secondary.

Detroit has won only one of its first four games, rallying to beat St. Louis. After this week’s bye, Detroit’s next two games are on the road against Philadelphia and Chicago.

The Lions made the playoffs last year in large part because Matthew Stafford threw 41 touchdown passes, 16 to Calvin Johnson. So far, Stafford and Johnson haven’t connected for one score. Teams are successfully setting up defenses to limit big plays for the previously dynamic duo.
