Nick Fairley out following unspecified 'procedure'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was not at OTAs on Tuesday after undergoing a procedure, coach Jim Caldwell told the Detroit News without elaborating. Caldwell is unsure if Fairley will return for the end of OTAs.

"He’s got a medical issue he’s dealing with," Caldwell said. "He’ll be back as soon as he’s recovered."

One veteran told the paper that Fairley's procedure was minor and not football-related, the paper said.

Nick Fairley shows up, Ndamukong Suh doesn't
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley attended the first day of the team's voluntary conditioning program, while fellow defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh did not, reports MLive.com. With Detroit electing not to pick up Fairley's 2015 option, his presence Monday "is an early sign that the team's risky move has grabbed the defensive tackle's attention," the report said.

Suh's decision isn't big news, according to the website. "He's a workout warrior and consistently one of the league's best-conditioned players," the report said.
