Lions LB DeAndre Levy Doubtful For Sunday's Game
The Detroit Lions likely will be without their most consistent linebacker for Sunday’s must-win game against running back Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks.
DeAndre Levy is doubtful to play against the Seahawks because of a hamstring injury he suffered in Monday night’s loss to the Chicago Bears.
“He’s probably been the best overall (linebacker we’ve had) through the games we’ve played,” defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham said. “The other two guys have had good games and dropped off a little bit here or there, but he’s been the most consistent, by far. Just if something happens where he can’t go ... we’ll get the next guy up, just like in the secondary. We just keep filling them in, and coaches are doing a great job with all the guys. So I feel pretty confident playing whoever we have on the roster.”
The Lions also will be without two starters in the secondary, as both safety Amari Spievey and cornerback Jacob Lacey have been ruled out with concussions.
Cornerback Bill Bentley (shoulder) is questionable to play but did not work with the Lions’ first-team nickel defense in practice today.
Cliff Avril (back), Louis Delmas (knee) and Titus Young (knee) are officially listed as questionable, but all are expected to play Sunday.
