Van Noy heads to New England as the main backup to Shea McClellin after Jonathan Freeny (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve a little over a week ago. The 26-year-old has logged 23 tackles in seven games this season with the Lions. He could see fewer snaps this week against the Bills as he learns the playbook and gets accustomed to his new team.
Van Noy (calf) is active for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Packers, MLive.com's Kyle Meinke reports.
Van Noy advanced from a limited practice Thursday to a full one Friday, so it doesn't look as though he'll face any restrictions in Week 3. With only one tackle through his first two games, Van Noy shouldn't be on the radar in most IDP formats.
Though deemed questionable to return, Van Noy has taken off his pads and remains on the sideline. The Lions' linebacking corps has now been whittled down to just two healthy players.
