Bynes compiled six tackles, two TFLs and one deflected pass in Sunday's 20-17 victory over the Bears. Bynes tied MLB Tahir Whitehead for the team lead in tackles Sunday and has now totaled 14 across the past two games. However, Whitehead is working his way back from a knee injury. As the team's leading tackler, Whiteheads return to full strength will likely correspond with a downturn in production for Bynes.
Bynes (knee) re-signed with the Lions on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Bynes rejoins the Lions after being released by the team back in September. He was initially placed on injured reserve due to a knee aliment, but his re-signing could mean he is nearing a return. Look for more information to be released this week, as the linebacker is expected to backup Thurston Armbrister.
Bynes (knee) reached an injury settlement, and was cut by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Bynes had been placed on the injured-reserve with a knee injury. The severity of his knee injury is still unknown. He had originally projected to provide linebacker depth for the Lions this season.
Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip) won't play Sunday against the Vikings, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Levy has not practiced since Aug. 24 due to a hip strain, so his Week 3 status is cloudy as well. In his absence this weekend, Josh Bynes will start in Levy's place on Sunday.
The Lions have re-signed linebacker Josh Bynes. The team declined to tender Bynes a restricted free-agent offer in February, but he'll be back with the team in 2015. The linebacker recorded 18 tackles and one interception in 13 games in 2014.
