Safety Louis Delmas is the latest Detroit Lions player to have surgery. The good news is that unlike the surgery defensive tackle Nick Fairley had earlier this week, Delmas isn't expected to miss much time. He had a minor procedure done to remove a screw in his right ring finger and is healthy enough to practice right now. The only reason he didn't practice on Friday is because the Lions are being extra cautious in order to prevent an infection.

In other injury news, wide receiver Titus Young and offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus once again missed practice. Young has been dealing with leg stiffness since last week and Cherilus is dealing with a sore knee. He had microfracture surgery on the knee near the end of last season.
One other piece of injury news involves defensive tackle Andre Fluellen. He broke his hand on Thursday after getting it caught in a facemask. He was wearing a cast on Friday and is expecting to play with a club on his hand going forward.
