Louis Delmas Injury Update: Timetable For Return Uncertain

Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas is still recovering from surgery on his left knee after missing most of training camp and the preseason, and now head coach Jim Schwartz cannot guarantee that Delmas will play in the season opener against the St. Louis Rams (via MLive.com):

"If he's going to play, he's going to need to get out there at some point," Schwartz said. "He's getting better. That's all I can say. He's improving every day. I don't want to say Monday is his biggest thing. We're going to need to see him get on the field.

"His first action isn't going to be Sunday against the Rams. He's going to need to get back. He's on a good path. I don't know when he'll get back, but he's been improving every day. He's been making good progress."

Delmas, the Lions' second-round pick in 2009, has struggled to overcome numerous injury problems during his NFL career.
