NFL trade deadline: Lions looking for safety help

The Lions are concerned about the health of top safety Louis Delmas, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Delmas has been excellent since returning from a long injury absence. However, he suffered an injury Sunday, and there is concern within the organization about when he will be back.

The Lions are looking to acquire a safety with starting experience and are expected to canvass the league ahead of Thursday's trade deadline.
