According to a source of 97.1 The Ticket, Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy has been cleared by some doctors to return to the lineup, but he has said he will not return, “until he receives full approval and is convinced he is 100 percent healthy.”

Levy has missed the last three games for the Lions and continues to sit out of practice due to injury. In those three games, the Lions defense has struggles and the team has gone 0-3.

Though his exact injuries remain a mystery, the source says that Levy could return to the Lions by Week 6, but he would only do so if he is, “feeling comfortable with his body and what doctors are telling him.”

In March, Levy talked to the Detroit Free Press about how he knows the risks of playing professional football, but that the NFL should be transparent when talking about issues related to the risks of playing.

“I think we, as players, have to acknowledge it and talk about it in a real way and demand answers. And talk about it now. I’ve heard people say they wouldn’t let their kids play football; that says a lot about what current players think and feel about the safety of football. Compensation isn’t an excuse to hide or downplay the facts. We need to know the risks and the rewards. This is an area in which the league has failed its players. Not only never talking about the risks, but some people going a step further to deny and cover it up. It’s imperative to help make players, current and future, more aware of all of the challenges they may face as a result of the choice to play football. We need to have the opportunity to really understand what each other may be going through. It’s scary to think I may have CTE.”

What do you think, Nation? Is Levy right to wait until he is 100% healthy, or is playing hurt just part of the game?
