Lions place DeAndre Levy, Don Carey on Active/Non-Football Injury List

Similar to the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list, two Detroit Lions players found themselves on the NFI (Active/Non-Football Injury) list before the first practice of the 2016 Training Camp got underway in Allen Park this afternoon.

Linebacker DeAndre Levy and defensive back Don Carey are the two ‘casualties’ if you will.

The NFI list is used for ‘players who are unable to practice as a result of conditions unrelated to football.’ The list also ‘covers injuries sustained during football played outside the NFL.’

Pretty cut and dry, the list is for players who have recently endured an injury that is non-football related and needs more time to heal or something like that. I wouldn’t get to freaked out over this, especially with Levy’s name being involved. Hopefully both names find themselves off the list sooner rather than later. Both Levy and Carey are well past their college football playing days, so this would have nothing to do with an injury that occurred during that time.
