Levy practicing for Lions as Detroit prepares for Jaguars

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy was able to practice Wednesday, and the team later listed him as limited.

The 29-year-old Levy has been dealing with knee issues and hasn't played since Detroit's season opener at Indianapolis on Sept. 11. He was limited to one game last season because of injuries.

Coach Jim Caldwell spoke to reporters before practice Wednesday and did not offer a timetable on how long it would take Levy to return to game shape once he could practice fully.

Detroit hosts Jacksonville on Sunday.

The Lions also confirmed that defensive back Don Carey has agreed to a one-year contract extension through the 2017 season.
