Practice Report: Only Delmas out

By Michael Rothstein

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- A day after all 53 players showed up at practice, the Detroit Lions only had one player missing Friday.

Louis Delmas.

And Delmas' absence wasn't much of a surprise as he has taken every Friday off this season to rest his ailing knees.

But it is a good sign for the rest of Detroit's injured players, including receiver Nate Burleson, running back Joique Bell and defensive end Ziggy Ansah, to be available to play Sunday.
