04/06/17LBDeAndre LevyKneeQUESTIONABLELevy underwent surgery on his right knee in an effort to repair a torn meniscus suffered during the 2016 season, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

Levy was released by the Lions back in March after playing only six games during the last two seasons. Injuries have plagued the linebacker after a stellar stretch of play in 2013 and 2014, but if he is able to get healthy again, he should see an opportunity to play on an NFL club. Levy has recorded 639 tackles, 12 interceptions and two forced fumbles over his eight-year NFL career.

01/25/17LBJon BosticFootQUESTIONABLEBostic (foot) signed a contract with the Colts on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Bostic last played in a game while with the Patriots in 2015. He spent 2016 with the Lions but wound up on injured reserve prior to the start of the regular season. He'll compete for a depth linebacker and special teams role with the Colts in 2017.

01/25/17LBArmonty BryantUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEBryant (undisclosed) re-signed with the Lions on Tuesday, the Lions' official site reports.

Originally drafted by the Browns in the seventh round, Bryant played 36 games with the team before joining the Lions via waivers during the 2016 season. He recorded five tackles, three sacks, and one forced fumble across five games with the club. He was ultimately placed on the IR due to an undisclosed injury. He figures to compete for a more solidified role providing depth at defensive end once training camp commences.

01/25/17DLStefan CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) is expected to ink a contract with the Jaguars, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Charles figures to provide depth along the defensive line for the Jaguars, but has never contributed enough to be worthy of IDP fantasy consideration.

01/25/17DBQuandre DiggsPectoralQUESTIONABLEDiggs (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Diggs suffered a pectoral injury in Sunday's win over the Saints, recording one tackle before leaving the game. The Lions signed Asa Jackson to replace Diggs on the depth chart with Adairius Barnes and Johnson Bademose also likely to see expanded roles the remainder of the season.

01/25/17DBAsa JacksonAnkleQUESTIONABLEJackson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Jackson suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Packers and will now miss the Lions' playoff run. In four games with the team, the cornerback recorded seven tackles and one pass deflection. The Lions' promoted Adairius Barnes from the practice squad to replace Jackson on the depth chart.

01/25/17RBTheo RiddickWristQUESTIONABLEHead coach Jim Caldwell isn't sure if Riddick (wrist) will be available for team activities this spring, MLIVe.com's Kyle Meinke reports.

A recent report suggested Riddick is expected to be ready for the start of the offseason program, but his participation apparently can't be assumed. He underwent surgery on both wrists late last season, missing the final four games of the campaign. Fellow running back Ameer Abdullah (foot) has already been fully cleared for a return, but the Lions are rumored to have serious interest in adding competition via free agency or the draft. Riddick's role as the primary passing-down back is secure, while Abdullah could face serious competition for carries.

01/25/17WRRyan SpadolaPectoralQUESTIONABLESpadola (pectoral) is currently on the Lions' Reserve/Injured list.

Since going undrafted out of Lehigh in 2013, Spadola had bounced around the league before joining the Lions' practice squad in 2015. He then signed a futures contract with the team at the end of the season, but suffered a torn pectoral muscle over the summer and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. His future with the team beyond the 2016 campaign is uncertain.

01/25/17TETimothy WrightKneeQUESTIONABLEWright sustained a torn ACL during the Lions' offseason program, which spurred the team to release him Thursday, The Detroit News reports.

After clearing waivers Tuesday, the Lions placed the tight end on injured reserve, thus retaining his rights while he spends the next year or so in rehabilitation. In three professional seasons with a trio of organizations, the hybrid wideout/tight end has totaled 89 catches (on 125 targets) for 907 yards and 13 touchdowns in 41 games.
