The Lions will be without their second-round pick for at least eight games.

The club is placing rookie outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy on injured reserve/designated for return, Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com reported Tuesday. The 24-year-old Van Noy is recovering from sports hernia surgery.

In a corresponding roster move, the club re-signed defensive end Darryl Tapp, whom it released on Saturday, Twentyman said.

A BYU product, Van Noy was the No. 40 selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. He’s currently listed as a backup to Tahir Whitehead in Detroit’s 4-3 scheme.

    I was really excited about this pick then I remembered it is a Lions second round pick, the death knell to any promising career.

    Good thing Tahir Whitehead seems to have figured out his game the timing for his emergence couldn’t be better.

    It’s football… guys get hurt… guys heal.

    That’s it and they’ll be fine.

    Seriously, football gods… When does the curse on Lions’ second round draft picks get lifted?

    The list of Detroit 2nd rounders lost or diminished due to early career injuries is staggering.

    Could be worse. It could be a 1st round curse, like the Packers. I’m surprised Ha-Ha hasn’t in the Ha-spital yet this year.
