The Detroit Lions announced that second-round OLB Kyle Van Noy recently underwent surgery to repair a “core muscle injury.” and is without a timetable for a return.
“Kyle Van Noy underwent a successful surgical procedure today due to a core muscle injury. We will continue to monitor Kyle’s progress and provide updates when appropriate.”
Van Noy reportedly first noticed the injury last week before their third preseason game against Jacksonville, and later met with a specialist this week. It was recommended that Van Noy undergo surgery to repair the issue.
“He’s still got to see the doctors, and the doctors are going to tell him he’s going to a specialist to take a look at it,” HC Jim Caldwell said earlier this week. “We’ll make a determination at that point in time where he is.”
Last year, Van Noy tallied 67 tackles with 17 of them coming for a loss to go along with four sacks and two interceptions at BYU. He also added seven pass defenses and scored a defensive touchdown.
