Lions LB DeAndre Levy reaggravates hip injury in loss to Cardinals

Monday October 12th, 2015

Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy reaggravated the hip injury that sidelined him for the first four games of the season in Detroit’s 42–17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, reports

Levy left the game in the first half without a tackle, and did not return. He said after the game that he had “tweaked” his hip, but that it was not as painful as the first time he injured it.

Levy strained his hip muscle in practice after the Lions’ second preseason game on Aug. 20. The injury had kept him out for seven weeks before he made his season debut on Sunday.

“It’s rough,” safety James Ihedigbo said. “He worked so hard to get back. He’s a key part of our defense. He was pretty upset.”

The Lions are now 0–5, remaining the NFL’s only team without a win. They will play the Chicago Bears in Week 6.
