Calvin Johnson, Delmas miss second day of practice; Vanden Bosch returns
ALLEN PARK — Calvin Johnson (ankle) and Louis Delmas (bruised hip) missed the second straight day of practice today (Thursday).
Johnson said on Wednesday that he rolled his ankle and it was not a big deal. He also said he expects to play on Sunday vs. the Kansas City Chiefs.
Delmas was nowhere to be seen on Wednesday. On Monday coach Jim Schwartz said Delmas had bruised his hip in the win on Sunday and he was in “we’ll see” mode.
Veteran DE Kyle Vanden Bosch will have Wednesdays off of practice during the season. He returned today as expected.
Nick Fairley and Jason Fox, who both had broken feet, are getting closer to healthy, but neither practiced Thursday.
