Draft Scout Kyle Van Noy News
10/15/14 - LB Kyle Van Noy returned to practice Wednesday, and remains on reserve/injured, designated for return. The Lions have 21 days to decide whether to activate Van Noy and the earliest he is eligible to play is in two weeks.
10/13/14 - LB Kyle Van Noy is eligible to return to practice this week after starting the season on injured reserve with designation to return. The outside linebacker underwent core muscle surgery in August.
"There is a chance from a medical standpoint that this is going to be his week to start coming back and getting a little bit more involved, and we'll see what that looks like come Wednesday," coach Jim Caldwell said Monday. "He's a young guy who hasn't had a chance to get in the mix of things right now where we are, so we'll have to wait and see."
Van Noy can't play until Week 10 because the Lions are idle in Week 9, but when he does return, the Lions hope he can be another playmaker for a defense that ranks No. 1 in scoring and yardage.
"He's athletic, he's big, he can run, he can tackle, so we think he'll have a positive effect wherever the contribution occurs," Caldwell said of the 6-foot-3, 252-pound linebacker.
The Lions drafted Van Noy with the expectation he would be a Day 1 starter. Tahir Whitehead ultimately won the strong-side linebacker position after Van Noy's injury, but with Whitehead moving to the middle in place of Stephen Tulloch, who's on injured reserve, Van Noy will have to surpass Ashlee Palmer and Josh Bynes to get on the field.
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.
