    The lingering knee issues of Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas may have altered the structure of his contract, but it will never alter his playing style, Gillian Van Stratt of Mlive reports.

    Quite simply, Delmas - who missed eight games last season and 13 over the past two seasons with multiple knee injuries - says he knows no other way to play.

    "My coaches and a lot of people that know me have been trying to ask if the knee will change my style of play," Delmas told ESPN Radio's Sean Baligian. "But I've been playing this game since I was 8 years old and the only way I know how to play is full speed."

    Delmas said Wednesday that his knee is in the range of 88 to 90 percent right now, but that he hopes to be 100 percent by the start of the 2013 season.

    "When I get to the ball, I create havoc," Delmas said. "So I definitely won't be changing up my style of play."
