Lions' DeAndre Levy has a knee injury.

Allen Park — DeAndre Levy is no longer dealing with just a quad injury. On Wednesday's practice report, the Detroit Lions linebacker was also listed as having a knee injury.

Levy hasn't practiced since playing all 70 snaps of Detroit's season opener on Sept. 11. The team has continually declined comment on his long-term status.

He was one of seven players to miss Wednesday's practice, including four other starters. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah continues to be sidelined by an ankle injury suffered in Week 2. Wide receiver Marvin Jones (foot), tight end Eric Ebron (ankle/knee), running back Dwayne Washington (ankle), cornerback Nevin Lawson (illness) and safety Don Carey (ribs) also sat out the session.

Safety Tavon Wilson, who wasn't cleared to play last weekend against the Bears, continues to be limited with a neck injury.
