  Lions | Jared DeVries likely to be placed on IR    Fri Aug 27, 09:57 AM

Detroit Lions DL Jared DeVries (knee) has undergone minor knee surgery and could return to the field this season, according to Tom Kowalski, of Mlive.com. However, he will likely be place on Injured Reserve. Although no decision has been made at this point, there are a couple of factors that point in that direction. One, the Lions are fairly deep at the left defensive end position. Secondly, DeVries is 34 years old and hasn't been involved in any significant football activity since 2008. DeVries suffered a tear in his Achilles' tendon early in training camp last year, had surgery and was lost for the season.

  Lions | DeVries injured Monday    Mon Aug 10, 12:19 PM

The Associated Press reports Detroit Lions DL Jared DeVries (ankle) was carted off the field during practice Monday, Aug. 10, after suffering an apparent ankle injury.

Footballguys view: The Lions could step up their rumored pursuit of Kevin Carter now, who could find himself the subject of a bidding war as injuries on the DL continue to happen around the league. This could also open up a starting spot for both Cliff Avril and DeWayne White to begin the year, we'll be watching closely to see who gets the snaps in DeVries place.

  Lions | Defensive end battle brewing    Wed Jul 29, 03:37 AM

John Niyo, of The Detroit News, reports Detroit Lions DE Jared DeVries appears to have the inside track as the team's starting left defensive end this year. DE Cliff Avril will be given a chance to prove he is more than a situational pass-rusher, while Dewayne White will also be pushing for time.

Footballguys view: This is an important position battle to monitor in IDP leagues, because the winner will be an excellent DE2 that will likely come at a low price, although Avril has been becoming a more and more fashionable sleeper pick in IDP leagues as the summer has gone on.
