Lions' S Louis Delmas gives the fans some love
Monday was the first day that Lions’ practice was open to the general public. At least 1,000 were in attendance and they got a good glimpse of safety Louis Delmas who ran along the fence line on his way out to warm-ups.
During practice he couldn’t help himself, Delmas was chirping back and forth with fans.
He loves them and it appears mutual.
“You have no idea, everyday out here with the fans is like game day. They bring energy and enthusiasm. I appreciate the fans so much and I love them to death,’’ said Delmas who missed most of last year’s camp with a groin injury that bothered him all season.
That is no longer an issue following offseason surgery and rehab.
“It’s resolved, I’m 100 percent,’’ Delmas said. “My groin injury is not a factor any more.’’
No wonder he’s in a good mood.
Tuesday and Wednesday practices are open. They start at 9:15 a.m., with gates opening at 8:45 a.m. The Lions practice facility is at 222 Republic Drive, Allen Park.
