Rosenhaus: Delmas’ Groin Injury “Severe”

Lions’ fans were bracing for a huge sophmore campaign out of Louis Delmas after an NFL record breaking rookie year in 2009.  Delmas became the first rookie in NFL history to score a touchdown on a fumble recovery, interception return and record a safety.  Delmas flashed a knack for big plays that hadn’t been seen in a Detroit secondary for years.

Naturally expectations grew for his second season and the optimism was still there even when Delmas missed a good portion of training camp and the preseason with a groin injury.  Delmas had a solid season, but his big play ability never surfaced and many fans forgot that he was playing injured.

Per agent Drew Rosenhaus’ Twitter feed, Delmas’ groin injury was far more serious than most fans understood.  Rosenhaus categorized the injury as “severe” but also a thing of the past as he declared Delmas, “back to full speed and able to work out with no limitation.”

Surgery was being discussed for Delmas during training camp last year, but he decided to play through the injury and had the surgery after the season ended.  Delmas is being counted on to return to his rookie form and give the Lions a legitmate big play threat in the secondary.
