Safety Louis Delmas returned to practice today for the first time since reinjuring his left knee in a late-October win over the Seattle Seahawks, giving the Detroit Lions hope he'll play against the Houston Texans on Thanksgiving.
Delmas has missed seven games this season after undergoing knee surgery Aug. 7, and the Lions have struggled mightily at safety in his absence.
Defensive tackle Corey Williams also returned to practice today after missing the last two games with a knee injury. Williams underwent surgery on his right knee in September.

2. Donald Fehr isnt executive director of their Players Association.
3. They arent 0-10, on the verge...
