The Detroit Lions have decided to bring in a familiar helping hand to help them deal with the injury to their rookie outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy. Darryl Tapp, who was recently cut by Detroit, was brought back in to help give the Lions an extra hand at getting to the quarterback. Although Darryl Tapp is a defensive end by trade, he is very quick to get off the ball, and he has shown great ability to get to the quarterback.
The Lions rookie linebacker has recently undergone core muscle surgery to repair a sports hernia. Kyle Van Noy is going to be placed on the injured reserve, with a possibility to appear after 8 games. Depending on the Lions situation at the time, it may be a good idea to make sure that Van Noy is completely healthy before he gets back in action.
