Coleman, Delmas still not full speed; Best says he's symptom-free
ALLEN PARK — Louis Delmas saw limited action in Lions practice Tuesday after sitting out on Monday. It’s not a big deal for the safety who is coming off knee surgery in the offseason. It’s a precautionary move.
Missing from Tuesday’s first full-padded practice was Jahvid Best who said he is symptom-free from his concussion, but has not been cleared to play.
Also out were S Erik Coleman (groin), S Jacob Lacey who banged his knee Tuesday, and Jeff Backus who is wearing a hard cast on his right hand after injuring his thumb.
Jason Fox and Corey Hilliard took most of the snaps replacing Backus at left tackle.
The players have Wednesday as a day off. On Thursday NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to visit.
