Middle linebacker has been a M.A.S.H. unit for the Lions this year, and as far as DeAndre Levy’s concerned there’s an in-house reason.

“Blame Dizon,” Levy said of injured linebacker Jordon Dizon. “He always used to talk so bad about the position in (off-season workouts). ‘Oh, the Mike is so easy, it’s the easiest position in the world. You guys don’t have to do nothing. It’s so easy. You guys are so soft.’ And now look what happens.”
Dizon suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while filling in for Levy, who was out with a back injury, in the Lions’ exhibition opener against the Steelers.
