This past Saturday Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas missed his third practice in a row. He had been given four days off when you add in the Lions' off day and it was tough to not start worrying about the possibility that he suffered a setback.

On Sunday however Delmas returned to the practice field. What's more he had his "heaviest work day" yet according to Chris McCosky. This was a positive sign as was the fact that Delmas was able to practice again on Tuesday when the Lions returned from another day off.

Following Tuesday's practice Delmas proclaimed that he's feeling as good as he has in quite some time and he made it known that he wants to play on Friday against the New York Jets.
