Lions coach declines to discuss likelihood of DeAndre Levy surgery

Friday September 25th, 2015

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell declined to discuss the likelihood of hip surgery for linebacker DeAndre Levy, reports the Detroit News' Josh Katzenstein.

“All we discuss and talk about is what is on the injury report,” Caldwell told reporters Friday.

However, the injury report simply stated that Levy did not practice and has an injured hip, which has been known since he sustained the injury in practice following Detroit's second preseason game on Aug. 20. He has not practiced since.

Caldwell added later that Levy, 28, is “making good progress” with his recovery.

Last season, Levy was a second-team All-Pro selection after recording 151 combined tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception.

Levy, who signed a four-year, $33.7 million extension on Aug. 5, has been Detroit’s defensive MVP in each of the last two seasons.
