Summary

In 2014, DeAndre Levy had the best statistical year of his career. In 2015, he suffered a hip injury in preseason action that ultimately sent him to injured reserve. The Lions defense suffered mightily without their versatile linebacker. While it looked like he would be cleared to play for the 2016, he went on the non-football injury list only hours before practice. "We just kind of want to be careful with him and just make certain he's ready to go," Coach Jim Caldwell said. "We anticipate he will be at some point in time. So if it was something long term that we deemed as being long term you certainly know that I would let you know that. He has since come off the NFI list and played in the third preseason contest. It appears the coaching staff wants to have him play the outside with Tahir Whitehead in the middle. That will ding him enough to keep him out of the elite ranks, but Levy should still come close to top-twenty linebacker numbers in tackle-heavy formats. (August 29)
