Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy did not practice on Wednesday, which is nothing new for a player who has been out of the lineup since the season opener.

What is new is the listing on the team’s injury report for Levy. Levy has been listed with a quad injury throughout his absence from the field, but Wednesday saw the team add a knee issue to the quad to explain why he’s out.

The nature of the knee injury is unknown as Levy hasn’t been on the practice field and the team hasn’t had much to say about his condition since he was initially knocked out of the lineup. Levy only played in one game during the 2015 season because of a hip injury, so it’s been a while since Levy has been in good health.

Defensive end Ziggy Ansah also remains out of practice for the Lions, who have lost three straight since a Week One victory. Tight end Eric Ebron and wide receiver Marvin Jones also sat out on Wednesday as Detroit began preparing for Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
