Delmas sidelined for Detroit

MINNEAPOLIS -- Detroit opened Sunday’s game at Minnesota without exciting rookie safety Louis Delmas, and it’s not clear if he’ll play at all.

According to the Lions, Delmas had an infected tooth and jaw that worsened during pregame warmups. The Lions have three reserve safeties on their active roster: Marquand Manuel, Kalvin Pearson and Marvin White. To this point, Manuel has been playing in Delmas’ spot.
