Backus back to work; Delmas, Best, Leshoure still out
ALLEN PARK — Good news and bad news on the injury front at Lions’ training camp today.
Left tackle Jeff Backus was back at work with his right thumb still in a cast and protective covering over it. Even though he’s a veteran, Backus did not want to miss any more days. There’s a difference from being in good shape to being in football shape. He’s working on getting to that next level. He said he’s played with broken fingers before, he just has to make adjustments.
Still out were: Louis Delmas (knee), Jahvid Best (concussion), Mikel Leshoure (hamstring) and Chris Greenwood (abdomen).
Safety Jacob Lacey was back at work after missing one day with an undisclosed injury.
Also, tackle Jonathan Scott was spotted walking through the locker room using one crutch with a heavy brace on his right knee. Definitely not a good sign for him.
