Delmas to start Lions camp on PUP list
Safety Louis Delmas was not at practice today (Saturday). Coach Jim Schwartz said he was excused for personal reasons, but had he been in attendance he would not have practiced because he’s still coming off a groin injury that happened during minicamp five weeks ago.
Tight ends Brandon Pettigrew and Will Heller also started camp on the physically unable to perform list while coming off injuries, as did cornerback Jack Williams, safety Ko Simpson and defensive end Jared DeVries.
DeVries, who missed all of last season with an Achilles tear, didn’t have much to say about starting training camp on the sidelines. Clearly, he was a little frustrated.
Schwartz said he was erring on the side of caution and some of the PUP guys could be back in a day or two.
