- With Stephen Tulloch out for the season, the Detroit Lions are going to replace him at middle linebacker with Tahir Whitehead. Whitehead opened the season as the Lions' starting strongside linebacker, and there was speculation that weakside linebacker DeAndre Levy would move inside considering he's played MLB in the past. However, the Lions decided to keep Levy at WLB since he's played so well at that spot.
Caldwell said part of the reason for moving Whitehead to MLB instead of Levy was due to how well Levy has been playing where he is.— Detroit Lions (@Lions) September 24, 2014
