Lions linebacker Kyle Van Noy is going for a second opinion on an injury that is "increasingly getting a little bit worse," coach Jim Caldwell said Tuesday. Van Noy has not practiced since struggling through 33 snaps in last week's preseason game against the Redskins, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"It's going to be a little while," Caldwell said. "It's not one of those injuries that's going to take a couple weeks. It's going to be a little bit. He's still getting -- I haven't heard on a second opinion yet, but it's a bit of a problem on the opposite side from where he had it before. It's a little bit different area, so he's got a little issue he's got to come through."

Van Noy spent the first half of the 2014 season on short-term injured reserve after undergoing hernia surgery last August. Van Noy doesn't need another surgery as of now, but he might end up on short-term IR again.

"It just kind of depends on what the final prognosis is and just, in terms of how long we think it's going to take, and then we have to make a decision from there," Caldwell said.
