Lions' Louis Delmas returns to practice

By Kevin Seifert

Sunday, the Detroit Lions shuffled their secondary in a message that no job is safe this summer.

Monday, some help arrived. Safety Louis Delmas, the Lions' best defensive back, was on the field and practicing after a groin strain sidelined him for the first nine days of training camp. Delmas actually suffered the injury during the spring, but team officials wanted him to spend the early part of August working on his conditioning to avoid a possible setback once he finally began practicing.

The Lions also activated tight end Will Heller from the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list Monday morning. That leaves the Lions with two players remaining on the PUP: Safety Ko Simpson (knee) and cornerback Jack Williams (knee).
