Lions' DeAndre Levy: Showing no signs of hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Levy "shows no signs of the hip injury that limited him" last season during mandatory minicamp, Mike O'Hara of the Lions' official site reports.

Levy was seen running stride-for-stride with TE Eric Ebron, and evidently appears to be be nearing his 2014 form. That season, Levy racked up 117 solo tackles - 16 more than anyone else - and finished second in the league in total tackles (only behind Luke Kuechly). Should Levy make a full recovery and maneuver through the rest of the offseason without any setbacks, he will undoubtedly re-bolster a Lions defense that finished 19th in the league against the run in 2015.

Lions' DeAndre Levy: "Ready to go"
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Levy (hip) was seen running, hitting sleds, and participating in team drills during OTAs, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports.

Levy is still in the rehab stage of his recovery from hip surgery. The star middle linebacker logged the second-highest tally of tackles across the NFL in 2014, signed a four-year, $33 million extension the following offseason, and proceeded to play just 17 snaps in 2015 due to the hip injury. Now approaching full strength, the former Wisconsin Badger will be welcomed back with open arms. Sans Levy in 2015, Detroit surrendered the 18th-ranked defense. However, in 2014, with Levy manning the middle, the unit allowed nearly 800 fewer yards and positioned themselves as the second-ranked defense in the entire NFL.

Lions' DeAndre Levy: 100 percent by training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Levy (hip) is expected to be fully healthy by training camp, NFL.com reports.

Levy is coming off a season in which he was limited to merely 17 snaps due to a hip injury that required surgery in October. After spending so much time out, he returned for the start of the Lions' offseason workouts last month and has reportedly looked good in the process. As Levy continues to increase his workload, he's expected to be 100 percent by training camp, which would represent a needed boost to a defense that faltered without him last season.

Lions' DeAndre Levy: Progressing well
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Levy (hip) participated in the Lions' first set of offseason workouts, which began on Monday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

It's unclear if Levy, who played just 16 snaps last year, will be cleared to take part in football drills next month. On the plus side, the linebacker -- who racked up an IDP-friendy 151 tackles in 2014 -- maintains that his recovery from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip has been "going great."

Lions' DeAndre Levy: Will resemble former self
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jim Caldwell believes that DeAndre Levy (hip) will resemble his former self in 2016, Lindsay Selengowski of the Detroit Lions ' official site reports. "I'm fully expecting him to be able to do the things he's always done for us," Caldwell said. "Make plenty of tackles. Be able to cover guys in terms of pass routes out of the backfield and detached. And certainly give us some help in terms of rushing the passer and blitzing once and a while. I expect him to be the same active guy he's always been."

Coming off three 100-tackle campaigns in four seasons, Levy inked a four-year extension with the Lions in early August, but an extended absence in the second half of the preseason was confirmed as a hip injury in advance of Week 1. It was serious enough to keep the outside linebacker off the field until Week 5, when he went without a tackle on 17 snaps. Hip surgery was soon ordered up, and injured reserve was his home the final two months of the season, meaning Caldwell's confidence in Levy's ability to bounce back won't be confirmed until OTAs and potentially even the start of training camp.
