Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said that linebacker DeAndre Levy will undergo surgery on his hip.
No decision has yet been made regarding whether or not Levy will be placed on the injured reserve list.
Levy left the game in the first half and did not return. He did not record any tackles.
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.
The 28-year-old was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2014 after recording 151 combined tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception.
After Sunday’s loss, the Lions dropped to 0–5, making them the only remaining NFL team without a win this season.
They will take on the Chicago Bears in Week 6.
