Detroit Lions place DeAndre Levy on IR

DeAndre Levy's season is officially over.

Wednesday, the Detroit Lions announced they have placed DeAndre Levy on the injured reserve list. Levy went through hip surgery mid-October after suffering a setback from his injury in the one half he played against Arizona Cardinals.

This move likely explains the reports from Tuesday that the Lions will sign linebacker James Michael-Johnson. Detroit also confirmed this signing on Wednesday.

Levy did not tally a single tackle in the two quarters that he played in 2015. Back in August, Levy signed a four-year contract extension worth $33.72 million.
