Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy will play for the first time this season on Sunday, reports Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Levy was sidelined for seven weeks after sustaining a strained hip muscle in practice following the Lions’ second preseason game on Aug. 20. He began practicing last week, but did not play in Detroit’s Week 4 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

The 28-year-old was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2014 after recording 151 combined tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception. Entering his seventh season in the NFL, Levy signed a four-year contract extension for $33.7 million on Aug. 5.

The team announced on Friday that Levy will be a captain for Sunday’s game.

The Lions (0–4) host the Arizona Cardinals (3–1) at Ford Field on Sunday for a 4:05 p.m. ET game.
