Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas is feeling good about his chances for 2013, saying he's almost rid of the knee injury that has been lingering for two seasons. Delmas will use training camp to work on the knee in the hope that's it's 100 percent healthy in time for the season. “I’m feeling great. I’m not all the way back 100 percent yet, but I can go around the range of 88 to 90 percent right now,” Delmas told ESPN 96.1, via MLive.com. “I still got a long road ahead of me. I plan on going through camp, trying to build my knee up as much as possible so I can go into the season 100 percent.” While Delmas is optimistic about his chances for the upcoming season, the Lions aren't quite sold. Josh Alper of PFT writes: 'The Lions’ decision to sign Chris Hope this week was the latest sign that the team isn’t putting too many eggs in the Delmas basket after two years racked by injuries that have kept Delmas from participating in practice with his teammates all offseason. Delmas saw that he saw a team with potential to overcome adversity during OTAs, but the jury will remain out a while longer about whether the safety’s knee will allow him to do the same.'
