Lions' injury report: Fluellen, Delmas out
ALLEN PARK — Andre Fluellen is the second Lions’ defensive lineman to be sidelined with an injury this week.
Fluellen got his right hand caught in a face mask on Thursday and had it in a cast on Friday. Coach Jim Schwartz confirmed it is broken, but had no timeline on his return.
Rookie DT Nick Fairley broke his foot on Monday and is expected to miss most of camp.
At Friday’s practice, CB Alphonso Smith had shed the orthopedic boot from his broken left foot and was just wearing regular footwear. It’s a good sign that he’s on the right path.
S Louis Delmas had a screw removed from the ring finger of his right hand on Thursday and had a cast on it on Friday. Schwartz said he’ll miss a couple days because he can’t let the incision get sweaty for fear of infection.
RT Gosder Cherilus didn’t practice and neither did rookie WR Titus Young.
