Tahir Whitehead takes over at MLB for Lions
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Lions have decided to move Tahir Whitehead into the starting lineup at middle linebacker, replacing the injured Stephen Tulloch, who is out for the season due to a knee injury.

"It puts you right in the middle of the defense," Whitehead said, per ESPN. "It allows you to be able to flow sideline to sideline, as you saw with Tully over the years, make a lot of plays playing in the middle. It frees you up to do a lot."
