After practice today, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz didn't want to rule anyone out of Saturday's preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons, but it appears extremely unlikely that two of the team's high draft picks will play.
First-round pick Brandon Pettigrew (thigh) hasn't taken part in a team drill or done any hitting in the last 11 days. Second-round pick Louis Delmas (knee) hasn't participated in any significant drills in more than a week. The Lions only have two more light practices before they play the Falcons.
Receiver Calvin Johnson (thumb) is still in a cast is very unlikely to play on Saturday.
