Draft Scout Kyle Van Noy News
09/02/14 - LB Kyle Van Noy was placed on injured reserve/designated to return Tuesday (Sept. 1) by the Lions, meaning the rookie cannot practice for six weeks and will not be eligible to play until after the team's Week 9 bye.
Van Noy is recovering from surgery on his core muscle in his abdomen. He had been expected to start on the strong side, a job that now falls to Tahir Whitehead. A good run defender noted for his strong instincts, Van Noy had 226 tackles and 26 sacks during his career at BYU.
09/01/14 - OLB Kyle Van Noy, a second-round pick this year, is a candidate for the Lions' short-term injured reserve slot, according to coach Jim Caldwell, after undergoing core muscle surgery last week.
08/29/14 - OLB Kyle Van Noy underwent successful core muscle surgery Thursday to fix an injury that created back and abdominal problems this offseason. Van Noy will miss the start of the regular season and is a candidate for the team's short-term injured reserve spot.
08/24/14 - LB Kyle Van Noy said he's fearful the injury that held him out of Friday's game could be a sports hernia.
"I'm not too sure what the case may be, but that is a concern," Van Noy said Saturday. "Any injury is a concern to me. You always want to be healthy. That would be pretty concerning."
The Lions have said Van Noy, the 40th overall pick this year, is dealing with an abdominal injury, and he will undergo further testing. Van Noy participated in practice during the week. Though he's unsure when the injury happened, he said he first sought medical attention on Thursday.
Van Noy also dealt with a back injury during the offseason program, and he thinks the two injuries could be related.
"I've never been injured until I got here," said Van Noy, who played the maximum 52 games at BYU. "That was the first game I've ever missed in my entire life, so it's been pretty frustrating."
Lions general manager Martin Mayhew pegged Van Noy as a starter on the strong side immediately after the draft, but it's looking less and less likely that will be the case. Linebacker Ashlee Palmer, the starter in 2013, earned most of the first-team reps even when Van Noy was healthy.
Van Noy said he's not giving up on the possibility he'll be starting this season.
"I never want to be resigning. That would be kind of like giving up," he said. "I'm always going to compete to play. I mean, that's my job. That's what I'll do when I get back."
08/17/14 - LB Kyle Van Noy. The second-round pick led all defensive players with 35 snaps Friday and finished the game with two tackles. He had some time with the starters on the strong side as he and veteran Ashlee Palmer continue battling for the starting job.
